Excerpt
Excerpt: Good Morning Mr. Chairman, Congressman Meek, and Members of the Subcommittee. I am pleased to have the opportunity to appear before you with my colleagues from U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATFE) to discuss the use of canines in deterring, detecting, and preventing potential terrorist attacks. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) administers the National Explosives Detection Canine Team Program (NEDCTP), one of the largest explosives detection canine programs in the Federal government, second only to the Department of Defense (DOD). The purpose of this program is to deter and detect the introduction of explosives devices into the transportation system. TSA has worked aggressively to expand canine explosives detection capabilities in the civil aviation environment by doubling capacity since the September 11 attacks. While these efforts will continue, we are also working to expand our capabilities in other modes of transportation. TSA recognizes that canine teams are one of our most mobile explosives detection tools and is working steadfastly to take full advantage of the multi-faceted capabilities that canine teams provide.
