EOD Canine Program

Our Explosives Ordinance Detection (EOD) Canine Program consists of highly trained police officers who are partnered with well-schooled canines.  These EOD Canine teams train regularly with the US Coast Guard, FBI, US Customs and Border Protection Agency, and other local agencies.  They are deployed hundreds of times a year to sweep office buildings, classrooms, lecture halls, and various venues such as football games, graduations ceremonies, and other sensitive locations.  In addition, the teams  are often requested to assist other local, state and federal agencies.  Our teams have competed in regional canine trials and have gained national recognition by winning these trials. 

The explosive ordnance device (EOD) canine program, begun in 2001, provides security sweeps at many campus gatherings and sporting events.
