Police sniffer dogs used to find missing people and dead bodies "urgently" need better training and monitoring, according to an official report.


Sniffer dog Eddie was relieved of his police duties after complicating investigations
The Government's National Policing Improvement Agencysays specialist victim recovery dogs are not trained to approved standards, with no way of guaging their competence.
"There is no consistency in what the dogs can do and how it is done," the report states.
"Furthermore, there is no national standard for accrediting dogs and handlers or record keeping of the success rate they achieve."
The report says the dogs, which are trained to detect the smell of dead bodies, have "the potential to cause complications in an enquiry."

"There is an urgent need to have national policy on their training, accreditation and deployment," it concludes.
One kidnap investigation is highlighted in the report where dogs tied up valuable police time by detecting human remains in old furniture that had been bought from houses where the owner had died.
The use of victim recovery, or cadaver dogs, has proved to be controversial in a number of high-profile cases in recent years.
A South Yorkshire Police spaniel called Eddie was said to have sniffed out the "scent of death" at the Haut de la Garenne children's home in Jersey and the apartment from whichMadeleine McCann disappeared in Portugal.
But in both cases nothing more was found and South Yorkshire Police say Eddie is no longer working with them.

Sniffer dogs hindered the police probe into Shannon Matthew's disappearance
The NPIA reviewed the use of the specialist sniffer dogs two years ago, but its report has only now surfaced following a request by Sky News.
Victim recovery dogs from four different police forces were used during searches for kidnapped schoolgirl Shannon Matthews in Dewsbury in West Yorkshire in 2008.
The dogs found evidence of dead bodies, but officers later discovered the corpses were nothing to do with her disappearance.
"The properties searched contained a high level of second-hand furniture bought from dwellings where someone had died," according to the NPIA report.
"This resulted in numerous indications that required further investigation to confirm whether they were connected to the investigation, or to previous owners of the furniture."
The Association of Chief Police Officers told Sky News it was consulting individual police forces and hoped to have national training standards for the dogs later this year.

My friends, I urge everyone to publicise this at facebook, twitter, to everyone you know, through the entire internet. The more this is publicised, the better.

This about says it all really. Except of course that Eddie gets a mention by name.
