Police dogs have been joining the pupils in class in secondary schools in Alicante City this week. They are on the search for drugs and will be on duty, morning and afternoon, to sniff out any illegal substances hidden on the premises or being carried by the pupils.

The Labradors and German Shepherds from the local police canine unit have already had some success in their task. They have found small amounts of cannabis or marijuana, either hidden near the schools or in holes in the buildings’ exterior walls, or in some cases, being carried by pupils.

Diario Información indicates that the fine for those found carrying drugs on their person, if the amount is small enough for no more than personal use, ranges from 300 to 3,000 €.

The dogs’ handlers will also be giving preventive talks to the pupils in the classrooms on the problems for those who take drugs.
