DOGS HELP CUSTOMS OFFICERS
THE WAR ON DRUGS
Australian Customs Officers are world leaders in the use of drug detector
dogs to assist drug interdiction at the border. Customs has used
drug detector dogs for many years. However, since 1993 Australian
Customs Officers have been involved in the development of a breeding program
in conjunction with the Royal Guide Dogs Association and the University
of Melbourne. The results of that program are now coming on stream
and Customs anticipates improved detection rates as a result.
This page is presently under construction. When completed,
it will provide further insight into the variety of duties undertaken by
Customs Officers in Australia.
