In the spring of 2013, the Federal Protective Service (FPS) implemented a new directive entitled the Prohibited Items Program (FPS Directive (Rev. 1). The Prohibited Items Program sets forth FPS’ policy for applying security force countermeasures to mitigate prohibited item entry at Federal properties. The intent of the policy is to provide risk-based recommendations to Facility Security Committees regarding security screening, visitor processing, and the development of prohibited items lists and accommodation policies as well as establishing FPS policies and procedures for addressing prohibited items. The Facility Security Committee is responsible for determining the security countermeasures and prohibited item list for a particular Federal facility. FPS is responsible for implementing the security countermeasures and enforcing the prohibited items list developed by the Facility Security Committee.
