Contraband Detection

Many facilities, events, and buildings have rules about what you can and cannot bring inside. Often, this is to protect the safety of other people in the facility. Items banned from an event or building are known as contraband. Phantom K9 offers dog contraband detection services to identify illegal items, conduct a weapon and gun search, and remove items before they can pose a threat to the environment and its tenants.

What is Contraband?

Contraband is any item that is illegal in a facility, event, or area. Every day, people find new ways to smuggle contraband into secure environments. Dog contraband detection services are the only way to effectively, efficiently, and safely identify contraband before it enters an area.

The most common types of contraband include:

Weapons: Firearms and ammunition can pose a serious threat. Our dogs are capable of detecting various types of gunpowder as well as firearms when performing a gun search.

Illicit Substances: Substances like marijuana, cocaine, heroin, and meth are all illegal in the United States and can endanger the life of someone you love.

Alcohol: Although alcohol is legal in the United States, many facilities and event venues ban it.

Cell Phones: Criminals use cell phones to organize illegal operations and set off explosives.

How Do Dogs Detect Contraband?

Although humans may not notice it, everything has a scent. A dog’s incredible sense of smell is able to distinguish between many types of substances, including various types of contraband. We train our dogs with the latest cell phone detection, explosive detection, narcotic detection and weapon and gun search methods so that they are capable of identifying any type of substance that could harm innocent civilians.

Our dogs have regular and varied training. This way, they are prepared to enter any situation with professionalism and composure. If one of our canines detects a threat, they’re ready to jump into action to protect our clients.
