  • TSA Canine Handler

    Is there anyone out there who is currently an explosives detection canine handler for TSA who can give me more info on the job? Thanks kindly.

    I know at my former airport the TSA dogs were handled by the local Sheriff's Dept. They were bought and paid for by TSA and the Deuptys were sent to TX to train. From what I hear, TSA is working on a TSA Canine program that would make the handlers actual TSA employees. Something to look out for in the future. I would scour the TSA website for more info if I were you. GL mate.

      The TSA will at the begining of the next year be fielding their own K9 teams. Half will be non-leo handlers and the other half will be FAMs already in service. Other than that, the handlers are selected from the local law enforcement agency that has jurisdiction over the airport, trained by the TSA and provided with a TSA K9.

      Hope that helps

        So of the "new K9 teams fielded next year" will they be "selected from the local law enforcement agency" or newly hired TSA Employees?

        Will it be any different than what is currently in place?

        Thanks!

          The reason I asked was as a result of a posting I saw on USAJOBS recently in which TSA was seeking for a (non-leo) handler for the San Francisco office. I believe it was a GS-9. Thanks for the replies.

            TSA K9 teams are already in place. they drive pickup trucks with traditional DHS graphics. I've seen a few of them training at Dulles this summer.
