Scent Evidence K9
Human Scent Preservation Kit


Using a scent pad that has been correctly preserved within a sealed sterile jar reduces the start time of the K9 team.  When other articles, such as clothing, are used to collect the person's scent , it may be necessary to dismiss the scent of other people (e.g., other members of the household, law enforcement personnel, healthcare providers, etc.) whose scent may have contaminated these articles.
Having a scent pad that has been correctly preserved within a sealed sterile jar increases law enforcement and search personnel awareness of human scent discriminate K9 teams. Properly trained human scent discriminate K9 teams are capable of trailing in high traffic areas, on multiple types of surfaces, with trails that are over 24 hours old and vehicle trails.

*Each kit comes with a jar, lid, sterile gauze pad, tamper proof tape, label and instruction booklet.

To get your own Human Scent Preservation Kit contact Director William Nichols with the DeSoto County Sheriff's Department at (901) 282-7473 or email him at wnichols@desotocountyms.gov.
