Detection dogs represent an effective, reliable and least intrusive means to ensure a healthy, safe and orderly learning environment for our children. Assurance K9 Detection LLC can provide schools with the assurance that narcotics hidden on their property may be quickly and safely located. This affords the school the opportunity to address it immediately, and allows school administrators to decide how to best handle the results in compliance with the school drug policy. The searches and findings will always be confidential. Assurance K9 Detection LLC has no legal authority to confiscate the drugs found or relay any information to law enforcement. We are not associated with any form of law enforcement or government entity. The daily or random presence of a certified narcotics K9 can be an extra layer of security and a deterrent for your school. It is all about preventative deterrence. Searches will never be on a set schedule and the date of the search will not be revealed to students. Dogs can either validate the presence of a problem or deter anyone who wants to introduce contraband onto your school property. There needs to be a delicate balance in creating a safe environment without diminishing educative effectiveness. The concern should not be that your school has a drug problem, but rather eliminating the potential threat of drug use/drug dealing issues on school property. It is best to think of it as being proactive rather than reactive and waiting for a problem to arise.
Assurance K9 Detection LLC requires at least one school official to be present during the search. School students will need to remain in classrooms until search is completed inside the building. This helps reduce distractions to the K9 while performing the search within the school. The K9 team will not search classrooms occupied by students. If a perimeter search of school grounds is requested, then students do not have to remain in the classroom. If the K9 alerts on an area to an odor she is certified on, we will notify the school official accompanying the search what area there may be contraband. K9 Ellie is trained to have a passive aggressive response (sit/stare). This reduces damage to any school property and the most discreet way to alert on odor. We can provide a written report of each individual search for your school upon request.
Common and public areas that may be searched on school property:
-Vehicles parked on school property
-K9 TEAMS DO NOT SEARCH PEOPLE OR PERSONAL PROPERTY FOUND ON PERSON.
K9 Demonstration and Information Hour for Student Body
The Assurance K9 Detection team will also be available to conduct presentations for the student body. This shows both K9 team capabilities and teaches students how difficult it is to keep dogs from finding illegal drugs and introducing contraband onto school property. There will also be a question and answer session with the students at the end. Our mission is to provide both students and faculty a clear understanding of why we are in their school. This is not a show of force, but rather the opportunity to show your students that there is no place for drugs in your school and adding an extra layer of deterrence for potential threats. Now is the time.
