The Russian police is starting a pioneer field of dog training-forensic expertise of human smells and their residue
Russia's Interior Ministry is going to set up a smell database. Trained dogs will be in the foreground of the big job, Colonel-General Alexander Chekalin, First Deputy Interior Minister, said to newsmen. He visited Samara on the Volga for opening galas of a dog-training centre, Europe's largest, under the regional police board. The Russian police is starting a pioneer field of dog training-forensic expertise of human smells and their residue. 35 four-legged detectives are already at work, said General Chekalin. Detector dogs, as handlers refer to them, can tell up to ten smells of a particular person, his blood and clothes. A dog who has worked on the crime site recognises a suspect even much later to warn its handler with a gesture or a noise. Canine detectives come up as witnesses to form a body of evidence for the law court. Smell expertise has close legal regulations. Each instance is photographed, with a video footage also made. Smells collected on a crime site preserve intact for two or even three years. Dogs honourably rival even the most sophisticated gadgetry to smell explosives and other substances, and so are inestimable anti-terror fighters. They do much to track down dangerous criminals. The deputy minister proved his praise with the latest statistics. Police dogs prevented 211 terror acts in Russia from January through September last. They tracked down 763 kilograms of explosives, more than a thousand firearms, 138,000 munitions, and close on 1,500 kilograms of drugs. Dogs with their handlers are active in armed conflict zones, especially in North Caucasian anti-terror combat. More than 460 animals come out patrolling every day in Chechnya. 63 dogs have died in action to save humans since 1999, and 31were injured on duty, General Chekalin gratefully added
