FEATURED: K9 Training Volunteers Needed


San Francisco, San Jose, and Oakland handlers with TSA are looking for volunteers to help with K9 training. Volunteers will pose as secret passengers or “decoys” and will carry training items that will alert & engage the 900+ Bay Area Homeland Security dogs which keep us safe while travelling. All three airports have a limited number of people who are able to assist, which is why we are soliciting your help!


Our mission at TSA is to protect the nation’s transportation systems to ensure freedom of movement for people and commerce. Our canine teams accomplish this mission by providing Passenger Screening and Explosives Detection at checkpoints, departure gates, vehicle lots, cargo facilities, baggage areas, and for high profile events. These specialized canines are able to locate explosives on people moving through all areas in the airport. You can get an inside look at how these dogs react and are able to identify a person of interest in an entire airport full of people.


Although we live in a high-tech world, the sensitive noses of canines cannot be replicated. The noses of Team SFO’s German Shorthaired Pointers and Labrador Retrievers are some of the best around. Volunteers can help them proudly represent the Bay Area and TSA’s 900+ strong canine force.


The biggest need for volunteers is between the hours of 5 AM and Noon, Monday through Friday. Please contact the following people if you are available for these times or to see if your availability matches up other potential training times.
