Canine/K9 Services

Regius has chosen to incorporate the use of Narcotics And Explosive Detection Dogs into the services we offer for multiple reasons. Since our background is heavy in law enforcement at all levels – Federal, State and Local – we are very familiar with the use of canines. As a result, we are fully cognizant of detection dog capabilities and the benefits these services have to offer.

Detection Dogs are often utilized by employers, schools, private homes, corporations, military personnel and, of course, law enforcement. The Supreme Court, and most state courts, have granted particular deference to the olfactory abilities of service dogs therefore making the value of detection dogs evident.

Our dogs are certified, their training is documented and their track records are logged. This becomes very important when a case has to go to trial and a dog’s reliability will be questioned. Canine search and seizure is one of the few areas where defense lawyers have been remarkably unsuccessful in attacking the practices associated with detection dog utilization.

Narcotics Detection

Narcotics detection dogs have proven to be a sophisticated and effective means of detecting illegal drugs. As well, the entities that have incorporated their use on a regular basis, for example, schools, large employers, freight companies, have found that they are equally effective as a deterrent. In addition to sensitivity, a dog's sense of smell is particular. It can discern a specific scent even when there are dozens of other scents around.
