Making licensed premises safe and reducing the impact of drugs

Working alongside the police, council licensing departments, licensees, town centre safety managers, and pub watch groups, our experienced dog and handler teams support efforts to reduce public disorder and criminal activity in licensed premises.

We understand it can be difficult for licensees to spot criminal behaviour, particularly the sale of drugs on their premises. From pubs, clubs and music venues to hotels, arenas and stadiums, we can support you in taking a proactive approach to prevent criminal activity.

All our handlers are certified by the National Association of Security Dog Users (NASDU) and hold a Security Industry Authority (SIA) Door Supervisor licence.

Whether you require our services for a one-off assignment, or you are a licensee and would like us to provide a regular service to deter criminal activity at your premises, please get in touch.

Sniffer Dogs to reduce drugs on your premises

Our drug detection dogs are able to identify drugs passively and proactively in your pub, hotel, nightclub, or restaurant.

Should drugs be uncovered, you can take action by implementing the procedures in your drugs policy. In passive searches, our dogs scan customers as they enter and spend time in your establishment. In a proactive search, dogs scale large areas quickly before guests arrive, working off lead when it is safe to do so.

Patrol dogs to prevent criminal activity

As licensed premises tend to house expensive equipment and vast quantities of alcohol, utilising patrol dogs for security purposes can be the ultimate crime deterrent.

Dogs have advanced senses, and our specially trained dogs can detect the presence of intruders much faster than a human. Replacing a valuable sound system and other expensive assets can be extremely costly for a business.

Keeping illegal tobacco out of licensed premises

Illegal or counterfeit tobacco does not comply with UK safety standards and can cause extreme health risks. Our tobacco detection dogs are trained to identify real and fake tobacco, even if it is hidden behind a wall or under a floor.

To help the fight against the illegal tobacco trade, we work with law enforcement associations and organisations to search licensed premises.
