Naming of LAX Security Chief Expected Today

July 02, 2002

The federal Transportation Security Administration will announce the appointment of retired former Navy Rear Adm. David M. Stone today as the federal security director for Los Angeles International Airport.

Stone, who was most recently director of environmental protection, safety and occupational health in the office of the chief of naval operations, will be charged with implementing new federal security laws at LAX.

This includes overseeing the hiring of 1,200 security screeners by November and retaining 2,600 people to work explosive-detection machines that must be in place at the nation's commercial airports by the end of December.
