Does the TSA have police powers? Can they arrest, or even legally detain you? Or do they have to refer cases to the local police?

Inquiring minds want to know…

One thought on “Question:

  1. So far as I am aware, no.

    But I say that with no specific knowledge of the actual laws/legislation/rules/memos at play.

    I do know that in every video wherein people ask, "Am I free to go?", the TSA agents very carefully decline from giving a yes/no answer.
