PHOENIX - TSA agents slept on the job and even left their post, according to a study of nearly 10,000 misconduct allegations.
The report, conducted by the Government Accountability Office, stated that the most common problems among agents were found in the employees’ attendance. More than 3,000 cases of agents skipping work, arriving late or leaving early were reviewed.
The study also found that agents would try to help friends and family bypass security lines.
The incidents covered allegations from 2010-2012 and found that problems increased more than 25%.
The analysis was a review of all TSA airports and did not mention Sky Harbor International Airport specifically.
