Third-Party Canine Teams Could Be a Solution for TSA

Third-Party Canine Teams Could Be a Solution for TSA

TSA Administrator Peter Neffenger said October 5 that he was in favor of using third party canine inspectors for air cargo at airports nationwide.

“I am a huge fan of explosive-detection dogs and I’m a huge fan of third parties providing those services,” Neffenger said at the US Air Cargo Industry Affairs Summit in Washington DC. “There’s no way the federal government can get all that it needs in terms of canines … I see no reason why third-party canines can’t work.”

Currently, the TSA only allows canine cargo inspections with agency-trained dogs at on-airport sites, but the agency has been studying the idea of setting standards for third-party canine screening and regulation at off-airport sites in anticipation of expanding the complementary canine team.
