Dog sniffs out stolen metal

Dog Sniffs
A two-year old black Labrador called Jazz was trained by former police officer and dog instructor Mick Swindells to locate SelectaDNA forensic markings on a range of metals including copper, lead, and aluminum. SelectaDNA is being used in many police-backed crime reduction initiatives across the UK and by companies such as Network Rail to protect copper cable from metal theft. Jazz is able to sniff for stolen metal in places like scrap yards, where metal is often piled high and any containing forensic markings is not immediately visible to the human eye.
Mick said: “Jazz is a world-first. She has been trained to sniff out SelectaDNA, which is a unique covert security marker being used by more than three quarters of UK Police forces to track down burglars, robbers, and metal thieves and bring them to justice.”
