CPA utilizes “cadaver dogs” that are specially trained in human remains detection. These dogs are able to detect the various stages of decomposition from recent death to archaeological remains. They have the ability to locate blood, tissue, teeth, ashes and skeletal remains that are located on the surface, buried or underwater. The benefit of using trained and experienced cadaver dogs, is they can cover a large search area in a shorter amount of time, search any terrain or weather condition including snow, gain access to areas humans can’t and detect scent that is buried or not visible to the human eye. The CPA K-9 Unit is a valued resource that can help bring closure to the family and loved ones of a missing person.
