Canine Unit

Upper page: Support Policing

In March of 2011, the RMPS welcomed the arrival of two Narcotic drug detector dogs. The dogs are male Labrador Retrievers who underwent rigorous training for three months at the Jamaica Narcotic Canine Division at Harman Barracks, Kingston, Jamaica.

These dogs are trained to detect narcotic substances such as Cocaine, Marijuana and other illegal drugs and aptly carry out their functions when required to do so.

The dogs were trained by Detective Constables Steve Rodney and Kirk Brade.

The canine division is linked to the Criminal Investigations and the Immigration departments. They conduct random checks at the airport, seaport and various drug operations.  Between 2011 and 2013 the Canine Unit has detected a number of illegal drugs to include Cannabis Sativa. The Canine Unit also conducts demonstrations at the various schools to displaying the skills and capabilities of the dogs named Champ and Shane.
