Lead Transportation Security Specialist-Explosives, TSA
Wichita, Kan.

Having served as an Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technician for four tours between Iraq and Afghanistan, former Air Force Staff Sergeant Stephen Mabe brings a firsthand understanding of the threats we face to his daily work with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).

Throughout his tenure, Mabe has improved critical explosives training for Transportation Security Officers (TSOs). He developed a detailed analysis tool to improve the quality of TSO training for detecting improvised explosive devices (IEDs).

TSA employs risk-based, intelligence-driven operations to prevent terrorist attacks and to reduce the vulnerability of the nation’s transportation system to terrorism. TSA’s goal at all times is to maximize transportation security to stay ahead of the evolving terrorist threat while protecting passengers’ privacy and facilitating the flow of legitimate commerce.
