Ward Security’s search dog section team is led by a retired senior instructor at the Metropolitan Police Dog Training School. All dogs are trained to the same exacting standards.
Teams from the Metropolitan Police regularly use our narcotic search dogs with great success to assist them on Automatic Number Plate Reader operations, which often lead to our use in Section 18 house searches.
We employ all of our handlers and own the majority of our dogs, which are transported in specially liveried and equipped company vehicles.
Our Narcotic Dogs have been successfully deployed at a large number of sites, including searching persons entering large concert venues.
Many of our units carry both a general-purpose patrol dog and a search dog, providing greater flexibility and lower costs. One client has 24-hour protection from a patrol dog team – used for high profile perimeter patrols – and explosive search dog team deployed to carry out full searches of any vehicles arriving on site.
