New York State: Tactical Team Program

SPTC Training Events Gallery

Canine Week

Launched in 2019, Canine Week focuses on sophisticated, "paws on" training for Explosive Detection Canine (EDC) teams that operate in New York State. These teams play a vital role in keeping our communities safe. They search for explosive devices at major public events, government buildings, schools, and other public places. The Canine Teams that participate in this event rotate through a series of very challenging - and very exciting - training lanes. This training event is designed by the SPTC, in coordination with a variety of partners including the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, the NYPD Transit Bureau, and the United States Secret Service.
