The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has replaced its top security official in the wake of growing lines at major U.S. airports.
Kelly Hoggan, the agency’s assistant administrator for security operations, has been reassigned to a new position, according to an internal memo by TSA Administrator Peter Neffenger obtained by NBC News. The House Oversight Committee confirmed Hoggan’s removal from the position.
The job now goes to Darby LaJoye, currently a deputy assistant, who previously ran security at Los Angeles International Airport and New York’s JFK.
Neffenger’s memo also announced a new security team at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, where severe delays have occurred and customers have been warned to arrive at least three hours before their flights, as well as a centralized National Incident Command Center.
