Following the bombings at the Boston Marathon, law enforcement throughout the area are on high alert and using bomb-sniffing dogs, according to WLNE-TV.
The neighboring state of Rhode Island has dispatched four of their bomb-sniffing K-9 units to help out in Boston after receiving a request from Massachusetts State Police.
Rhode Island’s state and local law enforcement and their dogs are also exercising high alert in public areas.
In fact, bomb-sniffing dogs have been hard at work in most major cities throughout the country, combing public areas, landmarks, government buildings and sporting events to ensure that the bombings that occurred in Boston yesterday don’t happen elsewhere.
Major airports in Los Angeles and San Francisco have increased police-dog presence, and cities including Atlanta, Detroit, Las Vegas and Seattle are looking to do the same.
Bomb-sniffing dogs are trained to detect thousands of possible ingredients in explosive devices, according to Discovery News. Details about the types of explosives used in the Boston Marathon bombing aren’t yet known.
