Interquest Detection Canines Interquest Canines

To the Crockett County Schools Parents, Faculty & Staff, 


Crockett County Schools always wants to stay on the forefront when it comes to school safety and ensuring the protection of our students. Currently, the school system works with the sheriff's department for yearly campus searches but the Board feels that searches done once a year are not effective preventive measures. The Crockett County School Board has entered into a contract with lnterquest Detection Canines to implement random and monthly searches on school campuses effective immediately. 


lnterquest Detection Canines provides passive, friendly, trained and certified dogs led by certified handlers to detect illicit substances and contraband including marijuana, heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, alcohol, pills, gunpowder, ammunition and firearms. 


By conducting random and unannounced searches throughout the school year, students are less likely to bring illegal substances on campus. The lnterquest program is a deterrent. The whole point is to keep our campus safe and provide a learning environment free of illegal substances. Other schools using the lnterquest canine program have seen dramatic decreases in drugs and other illegal substances on campuses. 


As a parent, I want my child to attend school free of distractions so that he is able to reach his full potential. I want every student in the Crockett County School System to be given that same opportunity. 


Being proactive about student and school safety is a great reason to add lnterquest Detection Canines to our school safety program at Crockett County Schools. 


When our program starts in November, we will be happy to welcome Tim Teft and Sierra to our safety team. 

Sincerely, 
P.A. Pratt
