Person-Borne Explosives Detection™

Unmasking Mobile Threats™

Person-Borne Explosives Detection™ Dogs (PB-EDDs) are explosives detection canines (EDC)* trained to detect and trail explosive odors – on a moving person – to their source. PB-EDDs are odor obedient and display a non-aggressive response to target odors to effectively search professional sporting venues, transportation hubs (airports, subways, train and bus stations), and crowded events. They integrate into existing security infrastructure – adding mobility, flexibility, and capability to commercial security and law enforcement officers.

Our PB-EDDs are trained in social atmospheres that mirror operational deployments. They are acclimated to heavy foot traffic, allowing them to imperceptibly scan large crowds as they enter a venue, arena, or transit hub. Our evidence-based canine and Handler training curriculum ensures PB-EDD teams are certified (by a third party) for both traditional explosives detection (static locations objects), as well as for detecting explosive odors on moving individuals. This means our PB-EDD teams can be used for pre-event venue, employee, and cargo screening, as well as personnel screening leading up do, during, and following an event.

PB-EDD teams are always visible and normally moving. These teams can be a stand alone layer of security and serve as a force multiplier. They are optimal when teamed with law enforcement or security officers – especially when used in conjunction with Human Behavioral Training.

Our teams are trained to integrate with a partner’s current security tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP), whether a private security company or local law enforcement.
