Whiff of Crime: Dogs Being Trained to Sniff Out Child Porn

WEBER COUNTY, UT - You know, some of us just seem to have a nose for sniffing out child predators, but those of us who don`t are now getting help from “man`s best friend”.

There are now dogs that are trained to sniff out child porn!

More precisely, dogs are sniffing out devices that are typically used to store child porn; USB drives, external hard drives, DVD`s and yes, even smartphones.

In fact a “porn sniffing” dog played a key role in the arrest of former Subway pitchman Jared Fogle.

How is sniffing for devices even possible? There's a common chemical in electronic storage media that dogs can detect meaning that the canines can also be used in other operations like terrorism probes or maybe even electronic mail.

Don`t be surprised if more device sniffing dogs become the norm with law enforcement departments across the country.

Here`s to getting rid of child predators one sniff at a time.
