TSA announce that Orlando International Airport has explosives detection capabilities enhanced with two new canine teams.


The US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced on Thursday that Orlando International Airport (MCO) air cargo facilities now has two new canine teams, certified in their local environment and fully operational, adding to the airport's explosives detection capabilities.

The canine teams, consisting of one dog with a TSA Transportation Security Inspector Canine Handler, have completed a rigorous 10-week training course at Lackland AFB, San Antonio and will be searching cargo bound for passenger-carrying aircraft.

As non-law enforcement employees, TSA canine handlers work with over 600 TSA-certified state, local and federal law enforcement teams which are currently deployed to more than 90 airports in the US.
