Where was your service dog trained?

Depending on the suitability of the dogs (a high play and prey drive is required here) and the needs of the individual police headquarters, the now trained service dogs then become "olfactory specialists" in a special course lasting up to three months on one of the important for the police Areas trained.

The Koblenz Police Headquarters currently has drug, explosives, corpse, banknote detection dogs and an incendiary detection dog.

Drug detection dogs are able to find and display all popular drugs like hashish, marijuana, heroin, cocaine, opium, amphetamines, ecstacy pills, and all other synthetically manufactured drugs.

The specialty of explosives detection dogs includes not only searching for explosives, but also finding firearms, ammunition, casings, self-laboratories and other projectiles.

Corpse detection dogs and incendiary detection dogs are just as important for criminal investigation work.
In both cases, the use of one of the aforementioned special dogs is usually based on suspicion of a crime (homicide or arson).

With their excellent nose work, the corpse detection dogs are able to pick up corpses or body parts as well as human blood or attachments thereof even after months or years and report them to the investigators.

The fire detection dogs detect faster and better than any technical device in the world at present whether a so-called "fire accelerator" (diesel, gasoline, thinner, acetone, etc.) was used to determine the cause of a fire.

In summary, it can be said that the service dog has become an indispensable part of today's police work, both as a protection dog and as a special dog to support the specialist departments within our organization.

At the PP Koblenz the service dog handlers do their duty in fixed duty groups around the clock to support the colleagues of the police stations of the presidential area and beyond.

In addition to working with the service dog, the service dog team prepares reports on the dangerousness of dogs in accordance with the state dog law as part of the administrative assistance for the municipalities.

Achieving and maintaining the required high level of performance naturally also requires constant training and further education, so that one can say that the service dogs are "eternal students".

In addition to the daily duty in preventing and combating crime, the Koblenz Police Headquarters also has a "demonstration group" as a voluntary association of ten service dog handlers who, with high acting skills, do the work of service dogs and their handlers in an interesting, funny and entertaining, but nevertheless informative way and bring them closer to the people at various high-profile events.
