Transportation Security Administration watch officers, in the TSA's coordination center at Hartsfield-Jackson, stay abreast of events happening around the country, and around the world, that may affect the airport. They also view projection screens, which show the three security checkpoint areas and baggage claim areas at the airport.

If a suspicious passenger was to be discovered going through a security checkpoint area at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport armed with a knife, or with a knife in his luggage, Transportation Security Administration officers would report the incident to their on-site deputy manager. The manager would then make a call to personnel at the TSA's coordination center at the airport to inform them of the situation.
