Vapor Wake® Resort Security

VWK9 Vapor Wake® teams offer a unique solution to the security challenges posed by resort layouts and operations. Rather than operating under restricted conditions and limited environments such as screening at access control points, Vapor Wake® teams can actively patrol and screen your entire property and your guests without them even being aware.

The Vapor Wake® training program produces the U.S patented elite explosives and weapons detection canines that follow the odor trails left by a person’s thermal plume, a technology that took over a decade of research and scientific testing in Auburn Univesity.

This technology is a vital risk mitigation tool for resort, casino and event security teams. With Vapor Wake®  teams, events, resorts, hotels and casino floors can maintain their open, relaxed environment while still offering a superior level of security coverage and K9 protection through our nonintrusive screening for explosives and weapons, just ask our clients below.

Casino K9 Security

Casinos are action-packed, exciting places. The casino floor is typically filled with flashing lights and loud noises, along with the hustle and bustle of patrons moving from table to table and machine to machine.

These distractions can make it difficult or impossible for people and surveillance cameras to track suspicious activity, weapons or an explosive device could go unseen and undetected until it’s too late due to environmental distractions, however, our scientifically trained and socialized Vapor Wake® dogs are taught to ignore these distractions.

Vapor Wake® K9 teams don’t need line of sight to zero in on a body-worn or carried explosive device or weapon. Instead, they track the unique odor of weapons and explosives and the presented odors are as clear and as tangible as brightly colored ribbons are to the human eye.

Dynamic Canine Services

Every casino and resort have differing security requirements. Whether you need to heighten measures around a few specific events a year, have seasonal demands, or the busy season is all year round, there’s a VWK9 solution for you.

VWK9 is different than other canine companies in that we don’t provide just one service. We are a full spectrum K9 company and offer excellence in both handler education and canine sales and services.

Given your security needs, it may make sense to purchase a Vapor Wake® canine and retain a trained handler on staff. Alternatively, if your property is looking for a canine team for ad-hoc events, part-time or full-time services, VWK9 has contract handler teams available at hourly rates.

Our traditional explosive detection canine teams and services carry Safety Act certification and VWK9 also carries the industry’s best liability insurance which also includes acts of terrorism perils.

Event K9 Security

Concerts, stage shows and corporate exhibitions can bring exceptionally large crowds to casinos and resorts. In addition to guests and patrons of casinos and restaurants on the premises, there’s a massive influx of event attendees flooding every area of your property. These large crowds are often difficult to contain without inhibiting guests’ access to amenities.

Vapor Wake® canines can integrate with your layered security approach to mitigate risks at these large events. First, VWK9 teams can screen the incoming equipment, crates, and packages. Next, they can screen your event staff at designated entry points, adding additional security in addition to magnetometers and bag searches. Finally, VWK9 teams can screen large crowds as they move unrestricted through areas like your resort plaza, a hotel lobby or a casino floor in a discrete, undisruptive and unobtrusive manner.
