Since 2001, NSW Police have used drug detection dogs in public places to screen members of the public for the scent of illegal drugs. An indication by a detection dog is used as a basis for police to conduct a frisk or strip search. Usually these searches find no drugs. As part of the #ditchthedogs campaign, calling on NSW Police Commissioner to end the use of drug detection dogs in public places, we've put together this infographic the failures and harms of the program.
