Hello,


I am in the process of finishing  my proposal for a canine unit in the jail. I have the proposal almost completely finished except for jail specific policy and procedure (cell search, inmate search, visitation searches, cell extractions, etc). It will be a passive alert dog so we will not have to worry about barrier searches. Passive alert is not my choice, but its what the fiscal court will sign off on. I have everything else including the funding, flsa issues, liability issues and policy, selection of the dog and training etc completed. All I need is Jail specific policy and procedure information. I am an experienced handler (6yrs) but i have never worked a dog inside of a jail. I know next to nothing of what those p&p's should be. If there is anyone here who has any tips on where to get the info, or agencies to talk with I would appreciate it. If anyone is willing to send me a copy (a redacted copy is great too) of Jail specific p&p's I am not wanting to copy and paste them, just use them as a guide. Either way, any help or guidance would be appreciated. Thank you.


-Mac

Big Mac. You joined yesterday and have a skeleton profile. We are suspicious by nature. Responses may be minimal.

* BUMP *


I just wanted to bump this to show I have been verified now.


So anyone who may have been skeptical to answer or comment can be assured now. I would appreciate any and all help you guys may have.

If you want to find out about K9 policy in a correctional facility, try contacting (direct) the Cook County (IL) Sheriffs Police Department.  I know they still use K9s in the jails.  Check out their web site:

You will probably need to make an official request for the info.


Good luck, stay safe.

Thank you to those of you that responded, I appreciate it. I am putting the finishing touches on the proposal, and I will be presenting it for approval either Monday the 13th, or Monday the 20th.
