Upon approval by senior commanders, the railroad police will have its own dog squad to improve the capabilities in the war on narcotics, the commander added.
Using police dogs appears to be very deterrent, as it will reduce narcotics-related crimes and improve police abilities in detecting drugs, he went on to say.
Detection or sniffer dogs are trained by police to detect substances such as explosives, illegal drugs or blood.
