Valentis Security Services Introduces Canine Program


PITTSBURGHValentis Security, 1326 Streets Run Road, has announced that, as of May 1, it will be providing Explosive Detection Canines as part of its security program services.

“We expect over the next several months that this program will expand to include more dogs as we maintain our focus to support Valentis operations at client sites and law enforcement agencies where there is a need to deploy certified and tested explosive detection dogs,” company officials stated in a press release. “The dogs we provide will meet the same requirements as military and law enforcement explosive detection dogs. Valentis views the canine program as an asset designed to further harden vulnerable client assets.”

The canine program will be overseen by Joseph DeCellis. DeCellis comes to Valentis with multiple tours overseas when he worked with the U.S. military in Iraq and Afghanistan coordinating canine explosive detection support and training. He is also a former consultant with the U.S. Department of State that was tasked to support and train the Government of Mexico with their K9 program. He is also a former law enforcement officer in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. DeCellis is a Master Canine Trainer who can certify dogs and their handlers to be used in military and law enforcement operations.
