The Transportation Security Administration announced the passing of another TSA Agent due to complications related to COVID-19. This is the 2nd TSA Agent to have passed away as a result of coronavirus infection.
On Thursday of last week, the TSA released a statement acknowledging that that Alberto Camacho had passed away on April 3rd. Camacho was a Branch Manager in the Acquisition Program Management Office for the TSA.
The TSA had this to say about Camacho:
“For over 20 years Alberto dedicated his career to both transportation and aviation security, and his contributions to TSA and our mission will not be forgotten. Alberto first joined the TSA family in 2005 as a Training Manager in San Francisco, and held positions in Security Operations, the Federal Air Marshal Service and Enterprise Support. He last served as the Central Region Deployment Branch Manager at the TSA Systems Integration Facility in Arlington, VA, where he oversaw the successful implementation of TSA’s passenger and baggage technologies. Every day, he worked closely with TSA’s partners to ensure the nation’s aviation security technology remained cutting edge and ahead of the threat. We offer our heartfelt condolences to Alberto’s family, friends and his TSA colleagues.“
This is the 2nd member of the TSA family to die related to COVID-19. Frank Boccabella III, a member of the Newark Airport team, passed away on April 2nd.
While airport traffic is precipitously down from last year TSA Agents remain on the job providing essential service in the pursuit of air safety. The TSA noted that just over 100,000 travelers passed through airport security last week compared to 2.5m+ during the same week last year.
