NSPA responds quickly to deliver sniffer dogs

16 January 2018


When an urgent operational requirement was identified to NSPA’s Operational Logistics Planning and Support Programme staff late last year to support the Afghan Army’s counter-insurgency capability with Explosive Detection Dogs - or sniffer dogs – the team acted quickly. Within five weeks Atilla and Betty were delivered to the Danish training team at Hamid Karzai International Airport North before Christmas.

While these first two dogs are sufficient to meet the immediate and critical requirement, NSPA will follow on to deliver additional dogs and contract the kennel construction later this year.
