PRIVATE NARCOTICS SEARCHES
Serving Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Washington DC
At Copper Detection Services, no situation is too complicated or unique for us to handle. We primarily work with drug rehabilitation facilities but also have experience working with churches, warehouses, schools, nightclubs, and a variety of other private businesses. Services can be customized to fit the needs of your facility. Our canine routinely performs searches of buildings, vehicles, personal belongings, and outdoor areas. We only utilize canines that give a passive alert, meaning that they will sit, lay down, or point when target odor is located.
When an alert is made by the canine, we offer you the freedom to handle the situation on your terms. Everything is handled professionally and confidentially. For a business this means you can keep narcotics out of your establishment and avoid any of the negative attention that comes with involving law enforcement.
WHAT SETS US APART
Our canine/handler team is highly qualified and experienced. There are many posing as professional detection teams but most lack insurance or any formal certification.
We are fully insured and canine/handler teams are certified annually by an internationally recognized organization using a double blind testing method. This type of testing exceeds the standards of many law enforcement agencies, who do not use double blind.
Most private detection canines are only trained using pseudo narcotics and are not certified, our teams are certified using only actual narcotics.
Our canine has been been through rigorous temperament testing and holds an internationally recognized title that combines temperament testing and high level obedience to ensure clients get a reliable and trustworthy canine.
Handlers also receive Opioid Overdose Response Training and carry Narcan to prevent an overdose in the event that a client, canine, or handler become exposed.
We are a woman and veteran owned small business.
Approved vendor for Maryland and Virginia
As much time as we spend training the canine what odors to alert to, we work just as much on training what not to alert to; distractions like food, toys, and medications that have no abuse potential. This greatly reduces the chance of a false alert.
We strive to be the best at our profession, teams train daily and regularly attend continued learning seminars held by top instructors in the detection industry.
We have experience working with government contracts and have an in-house contract specialist to assist
Our teams are full time professional detection teams that work at real world jobs every week, this level of experience cannot be replicated with any amount of training
Copper has been training in scent discrimination since she was 9 weeks old. She has hundreds of hours training and takes her job very seriously. When a target odor is found, Copper will respond with a passive alert by sitting, laying down, or pointing. Copper will alert to the odor of Heroin, Marijuana, Cocaine, Methamphetamine, MDMA/Ecstasy, K2, Ketamine, PCP, LSD, Suboxone, Xanax, and opiate based pain medications such as Fentanyl, Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, and Codeine.
