Detector Dog Teams Receive Explosive Training

(Tuesday, September 14, 2004)

WASHINGTON, D.C. Beginning September 7, 2004, the U.S. Customs and Border Protections (CBP) Canine Enforcement Training Center, often called the Ivy League of Canine Enforcement Training Centers, in full partnership of Homeland Security, started the training of new explosive detector dog teams for the U.S. Coast Guard. Instructors assigned to the CBP Canine Enforcement Training Center are conducting the explosive detection-training course for eight Coast Guard law enforcement officers and their canine companions. The course was modified slightly for the maritime environment including vessel searches, to better serve the Coast Guards mission. CBPs support of these Coast Guard explosive detection teams will continue long after the course is concluded to include additional training and future certifications.

The Department of Homeland Security continues to increase its arsenal of explosive detector dogs since 9-11. Working together and training the various DHS canine teams will only forge a greater bond in the canine enforcement efforts within the Department of Homeland Security. It will mean better communication, better understanding, and enhanced explosive detection capabilities, Commissioner Robert C. Bonner said.
