DETERRING DRUGS IN THE EDUCATION SECTOR

Local education authorities in the UK are realising the positive effects of engaging sniffer dog companies in the prevention of drug use and drug trafficking.

K9 Deployment working within the “Safer Schools” Initiative has made a huge impact raising awareness and minimising the presence of drugs in and around school and college premises often working in conjunction with the Police Safer Schools Officers, seeking to combat the exploitation of County Lines.
 

COUNTY LINES
 

With county lines becoming a very serious problem, we can help to prevent illegal substances from coming into your school as a highly visual deterrent or if unfortunately, it has already crept into the school, we can assist you with our drugs detection sniffer dogs to identify students that might be carrying or search areas to find where caches of drugs might be hidden.

EXPERIENCED IN EDUCATIONAL ENVIRONMENTS

Our drug detection dogs are trained to find a wide range of substances. We can operate with “high visibility” interacting with the public, staff, and students as well as for being deployed to do a premises drug detection search.

 

PREVENTION

We encourage the adoption and communication of “drug prevention policies“ to help create a safer environment for all and firmly establish the message that drugs will not be tolerated. 

We work with colleges and universities in a very similar way covering all campus facilities, student accommodation, and Student Unions.

 

DRUG DETECTION SNIFFER DOGS IN SCHOOL

SO HOW CAN WE HELP YOU?

We can advise how to approach the subject with parents and students, exercising due diligence for prevention or evaluation. We listen to your requirements and help you to plan the schedule for the visits: whether you need a preventative or a reactive visit – high visibility or completely undercover.

 

COMMUNICATION AND EDUCATION

We often take part in assemblies, explaining the types of dogs we use, how they work and carry out a small demonstration involving students as volunteers. It has been proven as an excellent resource to reduce drug use and drug dealing within schools.

 

ASSESSMENT


Whilst it is hoped you do not have any drug-related issues at your establishment, an initial assessment typically provides either peace of mind or validation of concerns. We typically carry out a search of classrooms, toilet blocks, changing rooms and lockers and sixth form common rooms and any boarding accommodation. Scanning of the lunch queue acts as a highly visual and quickly communicated deterrent. Substances may also be hidden in the grounds, shrubbery and wooded areas.

K9 Deployment benefits schools, colleges, and universities by raising awareness and minimising the presence of drugs on and around the premises. We have a large number of schools using our service. We continue to receive positive feedback on how it has contributed to dramatically reduce the associated issues.
 

CONTINUITY

Generally, we go into schools at least once a term as a preventative measure.
