DRUG FREE SCHOOL PROGRAMS
Drugs are life-threatening problems in our schools.
Drug use results in an increase in crime and a lowering of overall student performance. Research by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), from 1991 to 1996, shows the percentage of 8th graders having used illegal drugs has approximately doubled. During the same 5 year period, there was an approximate 50% increase in use for 10th and 12th graders.
In addition, as reported in too many recent news stories of student deaths in schools, firearms are an ever-increasing threat. Drugs and firearms are usually linked, with drugs preceding violence.
Illegal drugs and firearms present a problem for teachers, administration, and most importantly, for students. Undoubtedly your school has tried any number of different solutions, but is still seeking a solution that has a strong initial impact, and an ongoing impact, on students and personnel.Our service is available to assist you in establishing and maintaining a drug free learning environment.
Snyders K-9 Scent Detection, a private company, works confidentially with school administration. Our personnel do not perform any searches; we simply use our dogs to indicate the presence of contraband. This helps the administration be more efficient by limiting the actual searches to the areas of the school in which the dogs indicate the presence of contraband. If any contraband is located, the school administration decides how to handle the situation.
As a private company, you may call us in for any type of controlled substance search, even routine checks. Unlike law enforcement agencies, we are not restricted to come with probable cause and a search warrant. We can come anytime.
Demonstrations of the trained dogs to the school population can convey your strong message of support to those that wish to be in a safe and drug free learning environment.
