Arson Dogs

Arson dogs are useful tools for finding accelerants in locations where human investigators cannot. Some believe that arson dogs and their indication of possible accelerant residue should not be used as evidence in court.

Do you think arson dogs come up with better results than a chemical sniffer? Why or why not? Provide evidence to support your opinion.

If your last name begins with A-L, argue your opinion for allowing arson dog findings to be entered into court.

If your last name begins with M-Z, argue your opinion for preventing arson dog findings to be entered into court.
