The FBI is expanding its campaign to raise public awareness about the consequences of laser attacks on aircraft to include all 50 states. The effort builds on a test program started earlier this year at 12 FBI offices that raised public awareness about the dangers of shining lasers at aircraft through a series of public service announcements, billboards and media outreach. As a result of this campaign, the number of reported incidents has fallen 19 percent in the major metropolitan areas of the 12 field offices.
