On December 12th, 2018, our K9 Unit Steve Coulcher and his K9 partner Boetie responded to an unattended item on the public side of Terminal 1, Departures Level.
Boetie immediately identified the suspicious package and Terminal 1 departures area was immediately evacuated by Peel Regional Police. During this time our ASP officers, Supervision, and specialists stepped in to assist in crowd control and securing the evacuated area.
Our staff dealt with the entire situation very professionally. Some staff volunteered to help and stay back from their shifts to assist the airport in becoming fully operational in as short a timeframe as possible.
I would like to personally thank the following employees for their efforts during this situation and for your professionalism and assistance. Employees such as you are why ASP continues to grow into one of the leading Security Service providers in Canada.
A special thank you to:
Steve COULCHER and K9 Boetie, Saad JAMIL, Noel MISQUITTAR, Andre SINGH, Amanpreet KOONER, Mohamed MOHAMED, Gurbir AAST, and Ahmed AKBARI.
