According to the U.S. Transportation Security Administration's (TSA) latest checkpoint travel numbers, airport security screening activity has returned to the levels last seen in 2019.

As of March 23, 2023, the TSA is screening over 2.4 million people per day at airports in the U.S.

The TSA Strategy guides the agency through TSA's 25th anniversary and identifies three strategic priorities:

  • Improve Security,
  • Safeguard the Transportation System, and
  • Accelerate Action, and Commit to Our People.

The Secretary of Homeland Security recently announced 1,341 Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary's Awards winners, which honor employees from 43 states, countries, territories, and districts.

These individuals, the most significant number ever recognized, were selected for their extraordinary achievements and commitment to the DHS mission.

In 2022, DHS launched a hiring initiative recruiting hundreds of experts in digital user experience and design for the Customer Experience Program.

DHS is working to improve the overall experience for those accessing government services and benefits by accepting mobile driver's licenses, reducing processing times for immigration benefits, and simplifying FEMA policies when applying for assistance.
