This is the March 3, 2016 hearing on "Dogs of DHS: How Canine Programs Contribute to Homeland Security," held before the U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs. From the opening statement of Ron Johnson: "This is something that has been really a couple of years in the planning from my standpoint, because I have always been intrigued by the capabilities of canine units and I love dogs, particularly little puppies like Jerry. What we are going to first start out with is we are going to introduce the two canine teams that later will be doing a demonstration for us. The first is the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) canine team. Doug Timberlake is a Transportation Security Inspector for TSA, and he is here with his partner, Rriverso, who has a pretty special name, named after somebody who was lost in the World Trade Center, I was told. Mr. Timberlake, kind of walk through it." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Doug Timberlake, Jennifer Jones, Patrick Dowling, Kimberly S. Hutchinson, Damian Montes, Jennifer Grover, and Cynthia M. Otto.
