Currently throughout the nation, there are more than 1,000 canine teams part of the Transportation Security Administration’s National Explosives Detection Canine Program in charge of screening cargo and passengers.
The TSA Explosive Detection Canines and Passenger Screening Canines are trained at JBSA Lackland. The dogs are wired for smell. They’re hand-picked for personality, ability and mindset and are able to break down odors that humans quite simply, can’t.
