SAN ANTONIO, Texas, May 7, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Universal K9, a well-known Texas-based explosives, gun and drug dog training company, has an answer to the frightening, growing problem of guns and explosives in public schools.
Schools around the nation continue to be rocked by violence – CNN recently reported on a planned massacre in Minnesota that would have included the murder of an entire family, a massive fire set as a distraction, and then a shooting spree at a nearby high school. Texas schools have been rocked by similar waves of violence.
Metal detectors seem to promise greater safety, but they're largely infeasible according to most school administrators. "They're great if there's only a single entrance to the school, and if the school system has the $35,000 each detector costs, plus the cost of hiring security professionals," adds Universal K9 manager Jesse Stanley.
Universal K9's plan takes a radically different and far more affordable approach combining volunteers and fully trained gun and explosives dogs. One method could entail school as usual, beginning with their first period class. However, each student would leave his or her bag or backpack outside the classroom. Volunteers and trained search dogs would then investigate the bags, leaving a sticky note in front of any bags that triggered an alert from a dog. School administration would then search each suspicious bag. The method will be tailored to each schools personal need.
Universal K9 will provide the dogs and dog training free of charge, and each dog will actually be rescued from area shelters, helping to save a life. The volunteer dog handlers will agree to care for the dogs and volunteer their time to keep our schools and children safe.
