Dogs in bomb-detecting harnesses help NYPD patrol the city


The New York City Police Department recently deployed new technology for the canine unit to help prevent terrorist attacks — and keep the Big Apple’s subway system safe.

The technology is called TREDD, which stands for “Transit Enhanced Detection Dog.”

It takes the idea of the bomb-sniffing dog to a whole new level. TREDD is an advanced explosive detection system. It pairs canines trained in explosives detection with special harnesses equipped with electronics. The sensors inside the harnesses enable the dogs to detect radiation and other biological or chemical agents that the dogs’ noses can’t.
