The ART, supports the federal government approval of providing firearms to AVSEC officials as it is expected to enhance our national civil aviation security program (NCASP).

The primary objective of AVSEC is the protection and safety of passengers, crew, ground personnel, aircraft and facilities serving civil aviation against act of unlawful interference in sterile areas of airport therefore the participation of other security agencies are inevitable in the airport security network.

Consequent to this approval ART strongly advise a review of the airport security architecture to cover elements of the various security agencies   which will now form the new organogram.
