Police at Manchester Airport are in the doghouse after a report said their squad of sniffer dogs were producing “a low return for investment” for the £1.35 million they cost.
The review which was done under supervision of the Independent Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration was done to examine the efficiency and effectiveness the Border force at Manchester Airport, who are managed by the Home Office.
The report stated that within a 7 month period between November 2014 and June 2015 the Sniffer Dogs at Manchester Airport did not find any Class A drugs which are deemed a high priority for the Border Force.
The report went on to describe issues such as one of the Dogs who had been previously trained to detect animal products was in fact alerting its handler to items such as Cheese or Sausages as these are animal products and the handler would then have to make the decision although it seems that due to the Dogs making mistakes it has started to allow banned items to pass through.
