"Good to Know" Video Outlines WSP Work at State Ferries
Olympia -- This month’s edition of the Washington State Patrol’s Good to Know video series gives viewers a look at how State Troopers and their canine partners protect passengers travelling on state ferries.
In particular, the video suggests ways that passengers traveling with animals can avoid conflicts with explosive detection dogs in the vehicle holding areas. The dogs play a special role. They not only look for explosives, but they are conversation starters with troopers. That in turn makes passengers more comfortable in letting troopers know when they’ve spotted suspicious behavior or an unusual object.
Remember -- if you see something, say something. The first thing to “see” is this month’s Good to Know video. The video can be viewed at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wCz8L9uQx3I.
