Checked Baggage Theft

You need to go through security at the airport, and all of your carry on luggage is thoroughly inspected. But what is being done to secure the items in your checked baggage?

If you know you will have to check your luggage, be sure to read Travelers’ “Dirty Dozen” Lowers Theft Risk before heading to the airport.
