From the Paper:

"The 9-11 hijackers disabled the transponder system. Piedmont still uses the same transponders but there is legislation that will call for the installation of transponders that cannot be disabled. An area that Piedmont has been able to comply has been with training of employees on how to deal with hijackers. Piedmont pilots do not carry personal weapons. They have been trained to use common items on the aircraft as a weapon such as the crash axe. Some pilots do carry items like pepper spray. Air marshals are mostly on high risk Piedmont flights such as Washington, DC and the Toronto legs. The pilots are briefed when an air marshal is on board and if two air marshals are on the flight they need to know the seating location of each other."
