No new areas have been added, but now there is one standardized procedure that is more comprehensive. In a major study, undertaken by the agency itself in 2015, TSA agents missed 95% of the weapons, explosives, and contraband items placed into passenger luggage. That particular audit, conducted by the Department of Homeland Security's Inspector General, reported that airport officers failed to detect handguns and other weapons. The TSA has all pat-downs conducted by an employee of the same gender as the traveler, and allows a passenger to request a private area for the screening, as well as to have a witness present.
The agency previously said the shift is "intended to reduce the cognitive burden on [employees] who previously had to choose from various pat-down procedures depending on the type of screening lane".

The TSA insists the enhanced procedures will not cause delays at security checkpoints. In fact, a successful plot on the TSA's watch would probably only lead to more funding for the agency - as government failures usually do - and even less freedom for travelers.
The new pat-down police has been phased in over the past two weeks.
