Search Dogs South
Search Dogs South attended the first ever joint Mississippi/Alabama IAI conference. The IAI is the International Association for Identification, a real life CSI organization. Bob Weible is a member of the board of directors and Paulette Weible is the historian. The 2010 conference was held in Hoover, AL., in conjunction with the Alabama Division IAI. The Weibles taught a series of classes on K9 crime scene work.
The Mississippi Division IAI is the certifying agency for crime scene technicians for the MBI and Mississippi Crime Lab, as well as for local law enforcement agencies in Mississippi.
Search Dogs South was invited to attend the Mississippi Deputy Sheriffs Association annual conference in Starkville where we set up a booth with our dogs. The conference gave law enforcement agencies statewide the opportunity to discuss with Search Dogs South how we can assist at a crime scene. Bob and Paulette Weible are members of the MS Deputy Sheriffs Association.
Bob and Paulette Weible, members of Search Dogs South, are members of the FBI Citizens Academy Alumni Association. The FBI Citizens Academy was established to educate the public about the mission of the FBI and to help promote a greater understanding of the benefits to public safety and law enforcement provided by the FBI in all our communities.
SDS does pet therapy at area nursing homes on a regular basis. We have found that the dogs really reach people in a special way. It is a very rewarding time for the dogs and the residents.
