WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Hoping to keep terrorists and others off-guard Transportation Security Administration conducted what it calls a random "Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response Operation" on Thursday morning at the West Palm Beach Tri-Rail station.
TSA spokesperson Sari Koshetz said that response, known as VIPR, is a highly-visible operation to help detect and deter any suspicious or dangerous activity in various modes of transportation.
The TSA VIPR teams are designed to enhance security by working in mass transit, aviation, rail, maritime and other transportation modes alongside state and local law enforcement agencies during major events or as a random deterrent.
TSA has partnered with local law enforcement to conduct thousands of VIPR missions from coast to coast across the U.S.
There is no credible information to suggest a specific threat at this time.
