The handler constantly observes the canine's behavior and will know immediately when the canine encounters one of the odors on which it is trained to alert. The dog will show a change in behavior. The handler will then take whatever action has been prescribed, such as notifying the facility's security force.
Although explosives detection is the main concern for our industry given the terrorist threat around the world, our canines can detect a variety of odors in support of a secure workplace. Detectable targets include chemical weapons of mass destruction, narcotics, concealed humans, and property tagged with an odor canines will detect.
Our field performance has been outstanding. We have searched millions of people for explosives with reliability unprecedented in the industry, approaching one non-productive alert in 100,000 searches.
