Tisdale Report Raises More Security Concerns At Airport

Delvonte Tisdale

CMPD has released its investigation into how 16-year-old Delvonte Tisdale snuck into the landing gear of a US Airways jet last November at Charlotte-Douglas International Airport. Tisdale's body was found in Milton, Mass., after he had fallen from the plane as it was approaching Boston's Logan Airport. Much of the report is redacted by TSA. CMPD has also redacted some sections on its own. However, the report, written by CMPD Major Glen Neimeyer, raises security concerns. Neimeyer says the airport's law enforcement agency is understaffed compared to similar airports. "In my opinion, the current law enforcement agency at CLT does not adequately reflect the type, size and functions of an organization that should be in place at a major metropolitan airport," Neimeyer writes. The size of current staff and his recommendations for improvement were redacted. Neimeyer's report also says that a private security company raises concerns. The company controls traffic on the departure and arrival levels outside the main terminal building. The name of the company was either omitted or redacted.
