HPROA Members;

Thanks for your continuing support. In order for TSA K9 to conduct training, they must use role players.  Being a role player is pivotal to our training; and it just simply means acting like a flying passenger in the airport while maintaining the item the canine is searching for (provided by the handler). Role players are a pivotal component of the program and without constant role player support they cannot conduct this crucial training.

In the month of April, we have a minimum of 2 slots available for each day. Two of our teams are getting ready for evaluations. Feel free to bring a friend.

Remember, our role players or decoys dress in casual attire they would normally fly in and we encourage decoys to bring some type of carry-on bag to assume the look of a flying passenger. 

Once a volunteer participates, they will not repeat for at least 60-90 days to prevent canine discrimination.

If interested, please contact me with the dates you are available to participate. Thanks in advance for your support.

DECOY PARKING AT HOU: 

For parking, drive to the ‘Passenger Pick-up area’ (downstairs) and follow the ‘Commercial Vehicle’ signs. Look for Zone 5 and drive all the way down to the end. Park by the ‘COH/LEO’ vehicle parking only. Once you’ve arrived, please call from your vehicle so we may meet you and place a parking placard in you dash.
