Were they heard muttering as they left the plane with the police "Mama told me not to come."?

Are you sure it was BOS and not Detroit City?

Old thread, but it was the most pertinent I could find! Please move if appropriate.

Curious experience whilst boarding the BA 214 at BOS last week. Last time I boarded at BOS was four months ago, so perhaps this isn’t new. (What was certainly not new is the fact that the lounge is still shut and there wasn’t anywhere open to get a drink!)

Shortly before boarding started, a group of six immigration and customs police officers arrived outside the gate, and lined up along the Tensabarriers leading up to the desk where passports and boarding cards are checked. Three officers were on each side of the Tensabarrier lane, creating a rather formidable looking scene as one approached the gate and walked between them. I don’t remember exactly what their uniforms said, but it was something like "immigration and customs enforcement police”. As you approached the gate for boarding, one of the officers would ask you to stop, remove your mask, and would hold up what looked like a mobile phone, to take your picture. After waiting a moment, the officer would tell you to move along. They were affable and polite, and appeared to be doing some training, as one of the officers was instructing the others to take turns snapping photos.

I presumed this was similar to the new Global Entry experience where the machine simply takes your picture and magically knows who you are, so I cracked a joke about how I hoped the officer taking my photo would not find any mugshots! He replied, “Well, we’ll find out in a second!” Then, a moment later, he said something like “all clear — go ahead” and I continued to the gate entrance.

A bit surprising. There was no indication of whether or not it was required, or whether or not it was possible to opt out. I didn’t ask, and I didn’t hear anyone else asking about it, either.

To be clear, I don’t have any mugshots. But I suppose we all have aspirations.
