Illegal Substance Detection Services

K9-and-handler teams are fast, reliable, and cost-effective screening tools for detecting the presence of narcotics. Homes, cars, schools, and businesses can be searched quickly and discreetly for the presence of illegal substances, including marijuana, cocaine and its derivatives, heroin, and methamphetamines.

Be Drug-Free Without Alerting the Authorities

Peace of Mind K9 handlers are not police officers. We are not affiliated with local law enforcement or any other government agencies. Therefore, the results of narcotics searches are confidential. We are not required to report our findings to the police. This allows you, the client, to be in control and handle the situation with the utmost discretion and achieve peace of mind without any unnecessary complications.

Venue-Specific Services

Residential Services

Drug use can begin at a very early age. As a parent, you may be concerned about how to confirm suspicions of having illegal drugs in your child’s room. These concerns can too often result in unwanted and ineffective confrontation.

A Private Solution

A drug dog can easily solve this situation privately. Using a Peace of Mind K9 handler-dog team is a simple way to inconspicuously detect the presence of narcotics in your home, such as marijuana, cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine.

Discreet Inspections

Peace of Mind K9s services are completely subtle, confidential, and effective. We will schedule the search at a day and time which you have determined is best for your situation. We will arrive at your home in an unmarked car, wearing street clothes, not uniforms.

What to Expect

During the search, if narcotics are detected, the Peace of Mind K9 dog will indicate his findings with a simple passive sit or a standing stare. The handler will identify the location the dog is indicating and the rest is up to you. We are not associated with any law enforcement agencies and are not required to notify law enforcement of the search or its results.

Peace of Mind K9 can search your entire house, including the following areas:

  • Attics
  • Backpacks and Purses
  • Basements
  • Bathrooms
  • Bedrooms
  • Cabinets
  • Closets
  • Front and Back Yards
  • Garage
  • In and Around Furniture
  • Vehicles

Whether you are worried about a family member’s potential drug use or that their friends could be bringing drugs into your house, you deserve to know with certainty that your house is drug-free.

Educational Institution Searches

Drug use in schools drastically increases the probability of crime, lowers student performance, and costs the school in both monetary and human resources. The presence of a highly-trained drug dog, as well as the knowledge that this dog is regularly present are powerful deterrents against the possession and trafficking of illegal drugs by any student or staff member.

Privately Taking Matters in Your Own Hands

Since Peace of Mind K9 is not associated with any law enforcement agencies and is not required to notify law enforcement of the presence of narcotics, school administrators can decide how best to handle the results in compliance with school policy.

Customized Inspections

Peace of Mind K9 can provide a single drug sweep of your school or we can create a customized reoccurring program to maintain a safe learning environment for all students, teachers, and administrators. Our K9 team will work with school administrators to outline a plan to search the following areas:

  • Administrative Offices
  • Auditoriums
  • Classrooms
  • Desks
  • Gymnasiums
  • Lockers
  • Locker Rooms
  • Parking Lots
  • Restrooms
  • Sports Fields
  • Staff Breakrooms
  • Stadium Seating
  • Vehicles

Commercial Searches

Illegal drug use can dramatically impact a company’s bottom line. It can affect employee performance and absenteeism, medical expenses, and can result in theft. Additionally, customer perceptions may be negatively impacted. One search by Peace of Mind K9 costs a fraction of what it would cost a business in both time and money. We help you rebound from lost productivity, a ruined reputation, and a public relations nightmare.

Your Choice for Privacy

A Peace of Mind K9 search is the optimal choice for discretion. We are not affiliated with local law enforcement or any other government agencies. You can avoid public embarrassment from law enforcement investigations and subsequent legal expenses which would certainly tarnish your company’s reputation.

Personalized Drug Detection Programs

Peace of Mind K9 can perform a single drug sweep of your facility or we can create a customized ongoing program to maintain a drug-free workplace. If contraband is detected, the handler will identify the specific location. Your management team makes decisions on how to handle the findings in compliance with your company policy.

  • Breakrooms
  • Employee Lockers
  • Grounds and Surrounding Areas

A Professional Means of Inspecting for Illegal Drugs

You and your company can take a proactive approach to drug use and abuse within your property or home. Peace of Mind K9 in Manassas, VA offers private drug detection services for vehicular, residential, educational, and commercial sites. All of our dogs are trained to meet or exceed national law enforcement drug detection standards.


Professionally Taught to Trace Illegal Drugs

Our dogs are trained to detect marijuana, cocaine, crack cocaine, methamphetamine, MDMA (ecstasy), and heroin. They are capable of locating the source of the narcotic odor even if the drugs have been recently removed, used, destroyed or relocated. Even though we do not specifically train our dogs to locate prescription narcotics, they will often show interest in an area where larger quantities are located.

Efficient, Careful, and Subtle

Searches can be scheduled anytime to best suit you and your company’s needs. This guarantees that you can candidly uncover who has prohibited drugs in their possession. Our dogs can efficiently search houses, apartments, warehouses, offices, dorm rooms, parking lots, commercial sites, and other areas. Our dogs are trained to provide a passive, non-disturbing alert without causing damage to personal property.

Confidentiality is Our Priority

As a private company, we do not conduct searches at your home or facility the way law enforcement officers would. In the event of an alert by our trained detection dogs, you will be advised of the area of alert and you will decide how to proceed. This gives you the opportunity to handle the situation without the intervention of police, the court system, the department of human services or the media.
