The other night on the way home, I walked over the Charles/MGH stop on the T and saw that police had parked an SUV and a cruiser from the K9 unit on the sidewalk by the entrance. Inside the station, they had set up a bomb-scanning/inspection station on the left side of the information booth and were inspecting random passengers that walked past them.
So I entered on the right side of the information booth, where there were no inspections.
Not sure what they managed to accomplish, aside from just standing around being intimidating.

One time when I was flying out of Albuquerque, they had just installed a new explosives-sniffing device at the TSA security checkpoint. I noticed that some people were going through it, and some weren’t. I asked the TSA guy if he wanted me to go through it. He said it was up to me.
I’ve always wondered if those MBTA dogs smelled for drugs, bombs or both. not that I’m packing either, but it’s always helpful to know.
Must have been having “drill”. It gets the moths out of procedures and gives the dog his/her walk =).
I asked a bomb dog handler that question once and he said they were trained for one or the other.
I’m guessing it was just practice for the dogs. But still, it’s just annoying and dumb.
