Dogs Trained To Sniff Out Cell Phones

A news report about smuggled cell phone sniffing dogs used in the Arizona Department of Corrections. Highlights from the report include:

  • The dogs spend 9 weeks — 320 hours — learning how to detect cell phones.
  • Contraband wireless phones that can be bought for as little as $40 on the outside go for as much as $800-1,200 on the inside. They’re smuggled in by friends and family during visits, by staff, even purchased during work detail.
  • The dogs are taught to locate and alert DOC officers to four distinct chemicals found in cell phones — ferric chloride, used to etch circuit board, rosin, promotes soldering, epoxy, used to fabricate the printed circuit board and lithium ion, gas from the battery.
  • One dog is stationed in every Arizona state prison, except the Phoenix facility, which is much smaller than the others.
