The AKDU’s K-9 narcotics detection unit comprises specifically trained, passive-temperament, intelligent Labradors, well-suited to performing article and premises searches in a number of diverse environments, including transportation docks, ships, trains, buses, aircraft, cars, trucks and schools, with extremely accurate results.
The AKDU K-9s are trained to detect an astonishing range (as many as 17,000 scents) of illicit substances and scent residues, including narcotics such as amphetamine, methamphetamine, MDMA, gamma- Hydroxybutyric acid (GHB), cocaine, heroin and marijuana.
Within any operational search, an assigned, trained, licensed handler is present, guiding the animal through specific ‘target’ search areas as outlined by and/or recommended to the client. Upon suspect article detection, the K-9 on duty indicates a suspect odour by stopping and assuming an unassisted ‘sit’ position. At this point, the item or search area in question is noted by the handler prior to further action being taken. In many cases, a safe course of action can be recommended to the client and action is ordered at the client’s discretion.
The AKDU’s Narcotics Detection K-9 unit is recommended as a specialised additional task force, well suited to supporting both state and federal policing services where deemed applicable. Available for large-to-medium-scale security operations, the AKDU Narcotics Detection K-9 Unit can be assembled quickly and efficiently, insuring safety and peace-of-mind prevails with each and every client operation.
