NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Highway Patrol has graduated seven new canine teams that specialize in explosive detection.
The teams were presented with a certificate and badge at a special ceremony held recently at the agency's training center in Nashville.
The six-week training course focused on teaching canines to assist their handlers in the detection of explosive materials. The dogs are taught to demonstrate a passive response by sitting when explosive substances are discovered.
This is the second canine graduation this year. The agency held a drug detection canine course and graduation in March.
