Port Authority to Replace Security Co. at Airports

NEW YORK (AP) -

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey will replace an airport security firm that was at the center of an identity fraud case.

The agency said Wednesday it will terminate FJC Security Services’ contract on Sept. 1. The agency will pay Allied Barton $221 million over four years to deploy 600 guards at Newark, La Guardia and JFK airports.

Authorities discovered last year that an FJC supervisor at Newark was an illegal immigrant who used the identity of a man who had been murdered in New York City.
