(CNN) — The Transportation Security Administration is recommending beefed-up police presence at TSA checkpoints and ticket counters during busy times at airports, the agency said in a report released Wednesday.

The review was compiled after a deadly November 2013 shooting at Los Angeles International Airport.

Paul Anthony Ciancia, 23, has been charged with murder in the shooting death of Transportation Security Administration officer Gerardo Hernandez. He faces 10 other charges, including attempted murder.

Two other officers and a passenger were wounded in the shooting on November 1.
