  • TSA seeks explosives to train canine team
    The Transportation Security Administration plans to buy 1,400 pounds of explosives for its canine training program. Bids are due on Aug. 13. “TSA’s National Explosives Detection Canine Team Program prepares dogs and handlers to serve on the front lines of America’s War on Terror,” the TSA said on its website. “These very effective, mobile teams can quickly locate and identify dangerous materials that may present a threat to transportation systems. Just as important, they can quickly rule out the presence of dangerous materials in unattended packages, structures or vehicles, allowing the free and efficient flow of commerce.” Government Security News (8/8) sm_share.gifLinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • Bomb threat prompts evacuation at Dallas airport
    A bomb threat to a commercial flight prompted officials to evacuate part of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport on Wednesday. The airport said it received a threat to an American Airlines flight between Austin-Burgstrom International Airport and Dallas after travelers had deplaned. The plane was towed to an isolated area. Nothing was found after two sweeps. It was unclear how many flights were threatened — the TSA said two flights were threatened, while the airline said the threat was directed at one flight and another was checked as a precaution.
