Scent As Forensic Evidence And Its Relationship To The Law Enforcement Canine
This paper examines the utilization of the police canine as a tool to discriminate certain types of scents (particularly narcotics, explosive devices, and accelerants), search for evidence, track suspects or endangered persons, and locate cadavers. Specifically, this paper examines the police canine's abilities and shortcomings while working "in the field" and in non-laboratory conditions. The role of the canine handler and the possibility of contamination are also examined.
