Federal Air Marshal Misconduct (2002-2012)


This chart allows us to visualize the Federal Air Marshal Misconduct data that was released in February of 2016 by the TSA.  In 2009 a reporter for Propublica filed a Freedom of Information Act request for reports of misconduct by Federal Air Marshals. The request was granted seven years later, and it gives us surprising insight into issues with the Federal Air Marshal Service (FAMS). The Washington field office has the most problems 530 reports of misconduct since 2002. It will be interesting to see how long it takes for the next set of more recent data to be released to the public.
