The elite K-9 unit that keeps New York safe

After the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, two NYPD officers created one of the most advanced K-9 units in the world writes Joshua Philipp in the Epoch Times.

On the average weekday, more than 5.6 million people use the New York City subway, more than a billion and a half riders in 2015. Lt. John Pappas, commanding officer of the NYPD’s Transit Bureau Canine Unit, is one of the reasons they are safe.

Pappas and Sgt. Randy Brenner developed the NYPD “vapor wake” program — a highly advanced K-9 unit specializing in locating suicide bombers and other explosives. And they do it in many highly noisy, crowded, confusing locations.
