Helen is an accomplished Specialist Search Dog Instructor with a proven track record training Explosives, Narcotics, Firearms and Cash Detection dogs both in the UK and overseas.
She joins us from the Metropolitan Police, after 25 years service, the last five of which she was the Lead Explosives Search Dog Instructor at their Dog Training Establishment.
Helen was a member of the working party that updated the National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC) Dog Training Manual, this included working closely with the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) and the Home Office developing the criteria for the new National Canine Training and Accreditation Scheme (NCTAS). The culmination of this project was the successful piloting of the scheme with all course dogs achieving the new standard.
