Mantrailing Seminar with Professional Instructors
These seminars in Uster, Switzerland, are aimed at search dog teams who have already gained experience in trailing and would like to develop further. After an initial analysis, Mark Brown or Paul Coley will work individually with the teams according to their educational level. Any existing difficulties are addressed and next training steps initiated. These may include issues such as negative start, negative end, odorant contamination, differentiation, and more. The seminar language is English. The number of participants is limited.
Paul Coley – Founder & CEO, Scent Evidence K9
Paul is a former FBI Forensic Canine Operations Specialist and has dedicated his entire career to public service in the fields of education, law enforcement, criminal justice, investigations, forensics, and emergency management.
As a member of the FBI Evidence Response Team, he has deployed human scent evidence K9 Trailing teams in cases across the United States. Paul has also served as an instructor for National Academy Classes at FBI Academy and presented his scent discrimination techniques during the 2017 International Scent Summit in Austria.
Paul founded Scent Evidence K9 in 2012 to help communities and law enforcement agencies improve their methods of locating missing persons. Like many other canine handlers, Paul faced the challenge of finding an effective scent article during deployments. He developed the first scientifically-tested and proven Scent Preservation Kit® and “The SEKR” Scent Evidence Collection Vacuum to provide K9 Trailing responders with uncontaminated scent articles and on-scene scent collection methods that can increase location success and reduce find time.
Paul also developed the first standardized Human Scent Discriminate and Electronic Communication Device (ECD/Cell Phone) Scent Detection K9 Training programs and has opened a new 1200-acre training headquarters in West Tennessee to deliver world-class trailing K9’s and handler teams for law enforcement agencies across the country and internationally.
By forging a partnership with Florida State University Emergency Management and Homeland Security, Scent Evidence K9 is able to integrate UAS/drone technology into the K9 Trailing process that creates greater visibility and safer working conditions for handlers.
