Meet Craig, TSA explosives specialist (VIDEO)

In a new video giving a behind the scenes look at the Transportation Security Agency, security specialist Craig Ogden explains how he uses his expertise in explosives to provide a critical layer of security.

“When our officers at the checkpoint have concerns about an item or image during screening, they call on me to provide advanced alarm resolution,” Ogden said. “This means that I’m responsible for ensuring that the item isn’t a potential bomb.”

Odgen served 14 years in the U.S. Army and deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan as the platoon sergeant of an explosive ordnance disposal company. He provides training to TSA officers on explosives and improvised explosive device detection, as well as concealment and smuggling techniques.
