The Transportation Security Agency (TSA) at Boise Airport is highlighting the work of one of their explosive detection canines.

The TSA utilizes explosive detection canines to supplement its security operations at airports nationwide. These working dogs, paired with human handlers, are trained to detect explosives and explosives components. They can regularly be seen working throughout the aviation environment as a visible layer of security to supplement efforts to keep travelers safe and secure.

The canines are regularly tested to ensure they maintain a high standard of operational effectiveness. Their presence also serves as a deterrent against those who would like to disrupt the transportation system.

In addition to working in support of aviation security, explosive detection canines have also worked to secure large venues and events including Boise State University football games and concerts. They can also be deployed to support security operations at major sporting events, political conventions and other national security events at locations across the country.
