We hold on file all accreditations and training records for ALL our dogs and handlers and never deploy either until they have completed and passed the relevant training course applicable to the role they will be carrying out. We make all these available via a secure link to all our clients.
A through risk assessment and method statement is compiled ahead of every deployment, these then make up the fundamental basis of our briefings, which all handlers must attend prior to tasking of the dog. We ask all our handlers to sign these reports to provide confirmation of their understanding. Our Canine Management Supervisor, or her representative, who is deployed on all our canine operations, will take full responsibility for our dogs and handlers and will be the liaison between ICDS and our client’s representative on the ground.
At the end of each event we debrief with the handlers and client to discuss our performance and any learning outcomes or practices that could make us better in future. If any learning outcomes are identified we endeavor to put these into place ahead of our next deployment.
In addition to dog handling all our handlers are trained in drug awareness, drug identification, Misuse of Drugs Act, licensing laws, evidence handling, report writing, health & safety, basic canine first aid and conflict management. All our handlers are SIA licensed in either Door Supervision or Close Protection.
ICDS EVENTS offers an individual, bespoke service with complete confidentiality and discretion assured.
We have in place procedures and policies designed to keep our dogs safe, secure and efficient during deployments. These have been designed with your customers safety in mind. Our handlers strictly adhere to these procedures and our comprehensive Canine Welfare Policy, (which is available upon request) is sent to all our clients before we engage in any deployments.
Working in partnership we provide a solution, which helps ensure your compliance to combating drugs in the workplace and your adherence to the Licensing Objectives.
A full confidential written report is made available following every deployment, this is sent across to the client should they wish to receive it, we then keep it on file.
We are fully accountable for our actions, and those by our dogs and their handlers.
