Airlines security policies post 9/11
Canine Explosive Detection
In 1972, a sniffer dog named Brandy found a bomb on board in a flight outbound from JFK New York to Los Angeles. Since then canine detection is used as a part of the security system at the airports. Post 9/11, every airport security used sniffer dogs to detect explosives in case unidentified baggage was found. TSA trains canines and handlers to TSA-certification standards and grants funds for canine efficiency.
