TSA officials hope a new program that pairs bomb-sniffing dogs and inspectors will improve cargo screening. The TSA is deploying its first canine teams in April and May at airports in Miami, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles and New York. "Canines are a great bomb detection capability," said TSA Administrator Kip Hawley. "First off, they all do a great job at detecting bombs. Second, they're very mobile. You can move them anywhere, including an airport environment, mass transit environment, and they're extremely flexible in the way we can use them."
