Today, cell phones are considered the 'Contraband of Choice' in U.S. correctional facilities.
All States K-9 P.O.S.T. Certified cell phone detection dogs are another tool, or deterrent, to help combat the problem in the trafficking of unauthorized cell phones into prisons and jails in the United States.
Cell phones are a hot commodity in prisons across the country and pose a serious threat to security. They are being used to plot escapes, threaten court witnesses, organize crime on the outside, gang violence, drug trafficking, extort money, engage in credit card fraud and more.
We provide prisons and other penal institutions with cell phone sniffer dogs and on-site training academies, individually customized to meet the needs of our clients.
All States K-9 Detection is the FIRST company in the United States to take up the challenge to train five company dogs in 2006-7 to sniff and alert to the odor of cell phones for use within the Departments of Corrections.
Our dual-purpose canines (cell phones & tobacco, or cell phones & drugs) are also proficient at detecting residual odors and residue. Locating areas where cell phones and/or substances are used or stored, although the actual cell phone and/or substance has been removed, can be an invaluable tool in identifying problem areas or persons.
"Today’s security challenges have produced a host of high-tech answers. Sometimes a scaled back solution that doesn’t require batteries or computers, and offers little more than a determined nose and a loyalty matched by no modern device might just be what agencies can use these days."
