K-9 Accelerant and Electrical Detection

K-9 assistance is not just for suspected arsons. K-9 Accelerant Detection should be considered for all fire/explosion investigations. If someone is facing criminal charges, or having a claim denied, it is incumbent upon the investigator to utilize all tools available to them.

The use of K-9 Accelerant Detection for the purpose of improving the investigation of fires and particularly in the collection of samples for laboratory analysis is invaluable to forensic fire and explosion investigators. Samples of fire debris collected as the result of a properly trained K-9's indication have a high probability of being confirmed as positive for ignitable liquids.
