Canine Contraband Inspections

Canine Contraband Inspections

U.S. Security Associates provides the private sector with fully trained and certified canine handlers and drug detection dogs. Our passive alert trained canines are used in the detection of Narcotics and Contraband:

  • Heroin
  • Opium
  • Alcoholic Beverages
  • Cocaine
  • Methamphetamine
  • Ammunition
  • Marijuana
  • Firearms
  • Fireworks

Note: Our canines can be trained to detect only Narcotics, if desired.

Canine teams are routinely utilized to search large facilities such as oil refineries, off-shore oil platforms, drill rigs, buildings, and storage areas. However, searches are equally effective in more confined areas such as aircraft, ships, automobiles, and lockers.

A positive canine indication establishes probable cause for management to request a search of the indicated vehicle, locker, container, or area. Inspections can create an ideal deterrent to the on-the-job abuse of the illicit substances and quickly identify violators of company policy.

All searches are conducted in a professional and courteous manner, as quickly and as non-disruptively as possible.

Our canine search teams always include Drug Recognition Experts (DRE's), who handle any substances found and are available for testimony, as court qualified experts.

Constant In-service training, ensures each team member is keenly aware of current illicit drugs of choice, their method of use, paraphernalia, and effects. Our Teams are available to assist management both nationally and internationally.
