Police train 70 mastiffs in drug detection

Police Kennels have trained a batch of 70 mastiffs which could be successfully deployed to detect cocaine, heroin or any other hard drug during anti-narcotics raids conducted by police.

They are among a group of 222 mastiffs belonging to Police Kennels, Police Kennels Director SP Lal Seneviratne said.

He said separate kennel units have been established at the Katunayake Air Port and the Colombo Port to assist in anti-narcotics raids.

“The mastiffs at the Galle Kennels are deployed for raids conducted at the Galle and Hambantota harbours and the Mattala Airport,” he said.
