NYPDrecently introduced new technology to dog units to prevent terrorist attacks and keep Big Apple's subway system safe.  

This technology is called TREDD and stands for "Transit Enhanced Detection Dog".

Take the idea of ​​a bomb detection dog to a whole new level.

TREDD is an advanced explosives detection system. Combine a dog trained in explosives detection with a special harness equipped with electronic devices.

"They were adjusting it to avoid detection by dogs."

"They were starting to make unconventional explosive devices. They were me. As we are studying, we knew that these dogs could not be detected. Normal explosives such as TNT, C-4 and dynamite know that these dogs can be detected. We went another way. "

The dog harness sensor sends the measurements to the mobile command post in real time. 

Using funding from the grant, Lieutenant Papas and NYPD collaborate with Massachusetts-based private technology company Blueforce Development Corporation to realize his ideas. did.

"I deployed these units there and knew exactly where they were. What they detected. I knew exactly what I was doing, "said Lieutenant Papas. "And we moved the pieces to make sure they covered all the areas that needed to be swept."

As Fox News reported earlier this week, the NYPD equipped with this technology. It is the only police station in the world. 

The first version debuted in 2015 during the visit of the Pope with theUN General Assembly.  

Since then, NYPD has been updating the system while collecting new information. 

"I had time to upgrade and tweak the equipment to complete this version."

Lieutenant Papas said. NYPD stated that it spent productive time during theCOVID blockage

"When everyone was blocked during the pandemic, finally tweaked it and It was an opportunity to upgrade the technology, "says Papas.

"I Our team, the NYPD K9 program, had time to train, so we can honestly say that we got out of the blockade much stronger than when we entered it. "

" Equipment We had time to upgrade, tweak, and complete and publish this version. ”

While NYPD was creating the TREDD, they demonstrated it for the Pentagon. , Shared information with other partners — but no one else has a TREDD dog. 

"If there is such a threat to all of us, it's not good to store it. This is not just a threat to New York City," says Lieutenant Papas. I did. ..
