DRUG DETECTION SERVICES – CANINE DRUG SNIFFERS
With the increased prevalence of illegal recreational drugs and with these drugs becoming less costly and more readily available and, compounding this, police resources becoming more stretched, Lyonswood Investigations and Forensic Group has identified the real need for skilled private sector resources in this field. Lyonswood has at its disposal a trained canine drug detection operative and a number of well seasoned drug sniffing dogs with years of experience and successes under their pelts.
Drug dogs can be used in private and commercial premises with the ownerâ€™s/ occupierâ€™s consent and prior notification and consent in respect of places of employment and motor vehicles. These places may include but not necessarily be limited to:
- Corporate employers
- Commercial workplaces
- Public halls
- Private residences
- Teenage party venues
- Public gatherings
- Entertainment facilities
- School formals
- Motor vehicles , vessels and aircraft
Pro activity is the key to risk minimisation. For every dollar spent on due diligence, recent Bureau of Statisticsâ€™ research has demonstrated that four dollars are saved in the long term. In relation to drug detection, the costs canâ€™t just be measured in terms of dollars savings and human life becomes the overriding consideration. If only one life is saved then no matter the costs associated, the end result cannot be measured in monetary terms.
If you are the owner of a hotel or night club you may be at risk of losing your license to trade if it can be demonstrated that you are aware or ought to be aware that illegal activities may be happening at your premises and that you have not taken adequate preventative measures to minimise the risks and show patrons a duty of care and to comply with the law.
Canine Drug Detection should be openly presented to minimise any anxiety associated with negative beliefs.
If you have an adolescent or teenage child or other family member living at home and you suspect that this child might be involved in the use or distribution of drugs then we can with the permission of the parent, guardian or owner of the premises carry out canine drug sniffing sweeps to find the illegal substances and perhaps save your child or family member from serious consequences. The other option may be a criminal history.
If your young person or family member is celebrating a 16th, 18th or 21st birthday celebration and you want to ensure a trouble free event and protect the interests of all who attend then we can provide this service in the most sensitive manner.
The mere suggestion and presence of a canine drug sniffing team at a premises or function is often enough of themselves to deter any such activity.
DRUG DETECTION DOGS SAVES HOTELS FROM POLICE CLOSE DOWN
Illawarra Pubs and Clubs off NSW most violent list
Posted May 26, 2011 15:07:00
The Illawarra Hotel is one of three venues in the region to be removed from the state’s most violent list.
The Albion Park Hotel and Castros have also been removed while the Shellharbour Workers Club has been added.
Hotel Illawarra, General Manager Paul Anzani says they’ve put a lot of preventative measures in place to reduce the number of incidents.
But he says alcohol related violence needs to be more broadly addressed in the community.
“Things like intelligent lighting, ID scanning, good lighting out on the street, techniques like that allow the staff to make some assessment and then talk to patrons it helps them better understand where that patrons at, because so many people are having a drink at home or having a drink as they approach a venue which are the things we need to break down and get on top of generally as a society,” he said.
He says sniffer dogs hired by the pub, have played a big part in deterring anti social behaviour and drug use at the venue.
“It’s a matter of choice if people feel threatened by that and there’s plenty of the other venues to go to which just don’t embrace incidents of drink spiking which we’ve had none of since the dogs have been introduced and it’s very hard for our security and staff to be aware of people who visit from out of town whose intentions are not to have fun in a typical way and may be carrying drugs,” he said.
ABOUT DRUG DETECTION DOGS
Recently we have seen in news reports the seemingly endless ability of our much loved canine friends to detect the presence of cancer in humans with over 90% success. Police, Customs, Prisons, public transport organisations and Hotels/Entertainment Venues have long used canine drug detection services with extraordinary success and reduction in crimes of violence and in the case of sedatives, a reduction in date rape. Our dogs are trained in the detection of Marijuana, Hashish, Cocaine, Crack Cocaine, Methamphetamine and Heroin. Our dogs and trainer are trained with one specific task in mind, to prevent a potential catastrophe.
At Lyonswood we can take Canine Drug Detection sweeps to another dimension and video the whole procedure with time dated video evidence of our dogsâ€™ activities, detection and the behaviour of persons involved or places where drugs are discovered.
There is really only one other option – to disregard what you suspect may be occurring and to not demonstrate a duty of reasonable care. It really isnâ€™t an option at all.
You will be surprised at just how cost effective this service is.
