Rhode Island Police use Dogs to Fight Child Pornography
Rhode Island police are using dogs to to fight child pornography by having them sniff out computer hard drives and thumb drives where evidence is stored. Detective Adam Houston credited Thoreau, a 2-year-old Labrador, with finding a thumb drive that held illegal images and video last month. The dogs are supposedly trained to sniff out different forms of computer memory, which contain evidence against those in the child pornography industry. Exactly how the dogs are detecting objects like hard drives has yet to be explained.
