With illegal drug use by young people on the increase, often arising from the exploitation of County Lines, you may be contemplating taking additional steps to safeguard the students under your care. If so, we can support you in achieving this.
Whilst it is hoped you do not have any drug related issues at your establishment, you may wish to consider increased vigilance and random searches as a deterrent and preventative measure using our highly trained drugs sniffer dogs and handlers. This approach is already having a significant impact with excellent results in academies, state and independent schools; where we at K9 Deployment are often working in conjunction with the Police Safer Schools Officers, seeking to combat the exploitation of County Lines. It is proving very successful by raising awareness and minimising the presence of drugs on and around the premises. We can operate openly to act as a high profile deterrent or more discreetly, if preferred; covering accommodation, classrooms, common rooms and all grounds.
We work with colleges and universities in a very similar way covering all campus facilities, student accommodation and Student Unions.
We all have a duty of care and a social responsibility to ensure the educational environment is a safe and secure place for young people to learn, free from the threat of illegal drugs. Please feel free to get in touch if you are interested in having an informal conversation about this. We would be happy to explain how we can help and offer advice on the best way of going about it to make it easy and work for you.
