The San Jose Police Department Airport Division was formed in 1990 when the SJPD absorbed the former San Jose Airport Security Police. A specialized unit of the police department, the Airport Division is staffed by officers with an average of over twenty years of experience, and training representing virtually every specialty within the SJPD.
As well as providing all basic police services, the SJPD Airport Division works with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA,) F. B. I. and other local, state and federal agencies to enforce the Airport Security Plan and ensure compliance with all FAA and TSA security directives, existing regulations, and emergency amendments at Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport.
