Police Duties and Investigations

Patrol Dog Handler


What was lacking in my investigations at the scene of the crime wat the Kocher Method. Now that I have learned the Method, successes are so amazing.

Crime scenes are compromised by people and the elements. Things are moved, altered, smeared and shifted but with the Kocher Method my dog looks at it the way I look at it; and my dog supports me in what I am doing by discriminating and picking the right targeted scent up to the find efficiently.
