VLADIVOSTOK, November 10 (Itar-Tass) — One of Russia's best cynological centers has been built here for the care and training of police dogs. The Center has been commissioned on Thursday.
The area of the Center is over 14,000 square metres. Forty-seven sheep-dogs, Labrador retrievers, and drug-sniffing spaniels currently undergo training there. The cynological center staff consists of 25 police officers, 16 of them policewomen, said an official in the press service of the Primorye Territory police department.
The Center has available a dog clinic for the treatment of service dogs, an operating room for dogs injured in line of guard duty. A post-operative house has a warmed floor.
A unique laboratory is being established at the Center where the smells of criminals will be used as evidence. Specially trained dogs will spot a law violator on the strength of his conserved smell. A new expert-examination technique will be introduced into police practice in Primorye Territory for the first time to collect both finger-prints and smells.
In 2011, with the participation of specialists of the dog training center, police in Primorye exposed 113 murders, 454 thefts, 91 robberies, and 25 hold-ups, and confiscated about one kilogram of explosives and three firearms.
Primorye police chief Andrei Nikolayev, when speaking at the opening of the new cynological center, pointed out that in present-day realities it is essential to use dogs more actively during the patrolling of public places, and the inspection of various vital facilities from the viewpoint of their protection against terrorists. This is all the more important on the eve of large-scale ceremonies at the 2012 summit of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum in Vladivostok.
