Our Dog and Handler
Drug Detection Dog
Our Dog and Handler will provide a high profile, visible deterrent to those involved in drug misuse or to those contemplating becoming involved in this illegal and harmful activity.
Our dog is trained with the ability to detect a wide range of illegal drugs. We use techniques such as search/scan both people and places as well as intrusive warrant searches in partnership with Police Scotland.
The Dog and Handler has responsibility for community and business activities such as school and college educational visits. On a regular basis, we work in partnership with the Post Office, Air and Ferry Terminal Operators and Police Scotland with the intention to Detect, Deter and Disrupt illegal drugs entering Orkney.
Along with partner agencies, we deliver educational packages to our schools, college and community groups. These packages are produced for age specific needs whilst complementing existing curriculum requirements.
In addition, we offer Corporate scan/search packages to business clients with the aim of assisting them in adhering to their company’s Misuse of Drugs policies.
