Bomb Squad/Explosive Detection K-9 Unit

The Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) unit, now known at the Bomb Squad, was formed in the mid 1970’s. In the early years bomb technicians used a great deal of creativity and primitive “home- made” style equipment to complete their tasks. The squad today is equipped with a full range of sophisticated equipment, including a robot, and is trained in the use of advanced technology for the purpose of addressing issues involving suspected or actual explosive materials. The five member squad is accredited by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. 

The Bomb Squad is supported by a three member Explosive Detection Canine Unit, which is based at Bangor International Airport.  This K-9 unit maintains three, purpose trained, Transportation Security Administration (TSA) certified bomb dogs. These are very effective mobile teams trained to identify dangerous materials that may present a threat to all modes of the transportation industry as well as in unattended packages, structures and vehicles.
