A Few Points to Consider....
- Canine searches provide a more complete and efficient search of large
areas like schools, parking lots, warehouses and offices.
- Canine searches screen a larger number of students at once as opposed to
random drug tests.
- Random drug tests cost an average of $25.00 per student. A canine sweep,
of an entire facility, is much more cost effective and can be tailored to fit
the school's size and individual needs.
- School staff cannot search students, their backpacks, or lockers without
probable cause, which a canine indication during a sweep can provide.
- Canine Searches DO NOT compromise student's right to privacy since they
are only alerting to odors of illicit drugs and do not take any consideration to
race, sex, age, or other discriminating factors.
- The canine itself is a deterrent to students and staff.
**Please keep in mind that these statistics may under represent the actual
drug use among teens because high school dropouts and truants were not
represented and may have more involvement with drugs and alcohol than
their peers. Early intervention significantly reduces a students risk of
becoming part of this growing number of teens.**
- A 2005 Study found that close to half of all high school students in the U.S.
had used Marijuana prior to graduation. Research is also showing that
those students who began smoking Marijuana before the age of 12 are twice
as likely to manifest mental illness.
- In a 2006 study 62% of high school students stated that illicit drugs were
kept, used or sold at their schools.
- A December 2008 survey of high school seniors reported 32% had used
Marijuana in the last year, and of those students 19.4% had used the drug in
the last 30 days. This is a pronounced increase from only 12% in 1992.
- As many as 32% of children who use drugs and alcohol before the age of 21
will go on to have serious drug addiction problems in the future that include
altered judgement and continual drug seeking behavior.
