We are proud to contribute in reducing smuggling
We are proud to contribute in reducing smuggling in the port of Rotterdam, but how do we do it?
Meet sleuthhound Sasja and her supervisor, an important couple in the fight against smuggling in the Rotterdam port area.
We see it as our duty to help reducing the amount of smuggling in the port of Rotterdam. If there is a possibility we can contribute in the fight against smuggling we are happy to do so. In this particular case we are proud to support sleuthhound Sasja and her supervisor Rene Boorsma.
Sasja has a fine nose for tobacco and precursors – raw materials for synthetic drugs. She is able to detect all kinds of smokers’ requisites in trailers and containers, constituents of amphetamines and designer drugs.
In order to achieve success, it is essential that the sleuthhound is continuously trained and that the bond between dog and supervisor stays strong.
Wondering how this looks like?
At the tax and customs museum in Rotterdam there are currently exhibiting pictures and a film where the customs show sleuthhound trainings in the areas of Klevenberg. This can give you a better image of how a sleuthhound and supervisor work together.
Teams like Sasja and Rene are essential to reduce smuggling in the port of Rotterdam. We are convinced of the positive effects of this approach and are therefore proud to be part of this initiative.
