ILEAS has been asked by the Illinois Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force to let everyone know about a new electronics detection K9 which is now available to LE.
Thanks, once again...to the outstanding and extremely generous support by Operation Underground Railroad (OURescue.org) - the Southern Illinois University Edwardsville Police Department just received a new dual-purpose K-9 ("Marshall") who was just sworn in upon graduation from the Jordan Detection K9 Company - Indianapolis, IN. Company owner Mr. Todd Jordan has trained (41) Electronic Storage Detection Dogs which have assigned assigned throughout the United States. Numerous hidden pieces of Digital Evidence have been recovered thanks to the training received by Mr. Jordan's company in support of the ICAC Task Force and other Criminal Investigations throughout the country. Marshall is a English Labrador Retriever, 18 months old and graduated on August 14th. The support from O.U.R. has been phenomenal in helping the ICAC Task Force arrest & prosecute Child Sexual Predators within Illinois. More help may be on the way as ICAC consider itself extremely fortunate for the partnership with both O.U.R. and ILEAS !! Marshall is available by contacting the SIU-Edwardsville Police Department.
