Phone Detection – A new skill for K9 dogs
Cell phones are fast becoming the hottest contraband inside of Prisons. They are difficult to track because of their size, they’re being easily smuggled in.
Inmates use them for anything from running criminal operations on the outside to planning escapes, or even worse.
But, as every item has a unique scent and dogs possess more than 250 million olfactory receptors in a nasal area 50 times larger than ours, Dogs have become the latest tool for sniffing out cell phones in prison.
At K9 Security England, we are now training Dogs for prison cell phone detection. Dogs are trained exclusively to detect cell phones.
