TSA Canine Decoy Training

March 1, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm HST



Help keep our airports safe and support our federal law enforcement agencies.
HPFEB is coordinating with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to help get the word out about volunteer opportunities as a canine decoy with the National Explosives Detection Team Program. TSA trains canines to detect explosives and explosive materials at the Honolulu International Airport. The canines work with a handler searching travelers and their belongings in the security checkpoint. The canine handler is trained to read a change In the dog’s behavior when it indicates an explosive scent has been detected. Currently, TSA has more than 320 passenger screening canines at airports across the country.

  TSA is seeking volunteers who can act as decoys to help train these canines.
 
On March 1st, HPFEB will host an informational and training session for PJKK federal employees in room 4-127 (Morning Session: 8:30a – 9:30a. Afternoon Session: 1:30p – 2:30p). 

RSVP: Contact HPFEB Deputy Director Brian Mikel (brian.mikel@navy.mil) to RSVP.

You may also contact Hollie Cruz directly for more information at 808-895-0660 or hollie.cruz@tsa.dhs.gov.
