To educate our youth
The workshops are designed to educate the students in an appropriate way, the dangers of getting involved in criminal activity. The ages of the students that have participated in our workshops include transition year students and Youth Reach projects 15 -17 year old’s, however we have also provided workshops for much younger students 5th – 6th class who have loved the interaction with the dogs.
To demonstrate how Cadaver Dogs Work
The favorite part for students is to participate in the demonstration of how Cadaver dogs work; students get the opportunity to work the dogs looking for evidence. The students are also instructed in how to search for and how to process evidence.
