Smith, Capt. William. Canine Accelerant Detection Program. ATF. December, 1987

Abstract: This article gives an overall summary of the pilot project for the Canine Accelerant Detection Program established by the ATF and Connecticut State Police Department. The daily training of the first dog began in May, 1986. In July, the dog successfully passed blind tests, and in September, the canine team was ready to respond to fire calls. The safety and health of the dogs was also examined during the experiment and no real problems were found. As a result of this pilot project, the ATF concluded that canine units were valuable assets to fire investigators.
