Everyone who attends a football match, game of rugby, an afternoon at the cricket, or a day at the races will want to have a good time. As sporting events can attract large crowds, utilising patrol and search dogs for events can provide organisers with peace of mind that they are doing all they can to ensure the safety of visitors.
We believe that prevention is better than a cure and when sniffer and patrol dogs are visible on site, people are deterred from causing trouble or bringing illegal substances into a sporting event arena.
All our experienced handlers and search dogs for events have undertaken extensive training, and are accredited to the highest industry standards.
Whether you would like a specialist drug detection solution, or an experienced canine patrol for crowd management at any sporting event across the UK, we guarantee a professional and discreet service. We have extensive experience of providing preventative security practices at large-scale sporting events, so please get in touch and let’s discuss your requirements.
Our search dogs for events can perform two types of drug detection searches. A proactive search is when the sniffer dog works with it’s handler while off the lead and is ideal for searching large open spaces before members of the public arrive at a sporting event.
During a passive search, our dogs will be on the lead screening a crowd, which is ideal for use as people enter a sporting venue, or while queuing.
Utilising patrol dogs for events where large crowds are expected can be the ultimate crime deterrent. All our dogs are accustomed to crowds and have been intensively trained to not feel threatened during potentially dangerous situations.
As well as acting as a preventative measure, a canine patrol can function as an extra layer of crowd management protection for sporting events and gives the public assurance that unwanted behaviour will be managed swiftly and professionally.
We are proud to be an associate company member of the National Association of Security Dog Users (NASDU).
NASDU promotes high standards, excellent training and ongoing education in the private security dog sector. We abide by the guidance & recommendations contained within British Standard 8517-1 for General Purpose Dogs & BS8517-2 for Detection Dogs. All our handlers are NASDU certified.
This British Standard sets the standard for screening security personnel working in an environment where safety of people, goods or property is essential.
It includes data security, sensitive and service contracts and confidential records.
Our dog handlers hold Security Industry Authority (SIA) licences.
The SIA is a statutory organisation that is responsible for regulating the private security industry in the UK.
All our handlers have undergone a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check, which searches for criminal records and activity.
As we regularly provide services to the education and healthcare sectors, the enhanced check shows that our handlers are suitable to work with children and vulnerable adults.
