How It Works & Why NCATS?
Videos can be filmed by whatever works best for you. All of the example videos were filmed on an iPhone or an Android phone. Videos can be sent via email or mail. Any email account can be used to transfer video, (ie., dropbox, google). Videos sent via mail must be saved in a format compatible with a PC and a Mac. Audits Are Done At Your Convenience!
You may choose to only video the building and area search for patrol on one training night then film the rest of the patrol exercises 2 weeks later on the next training night. The same may be done with narcotics/explosive detection. We do require that videos are sent together once all 6 areas required are completed.
*KEEP IT REALISTIC
NCATS standards have been approved by dozens of K9 handlers across the country with over 300 years of combined handler experience. Two of the industry's top attorneys are ready to help support you when needed. Those numbers are tough to beat. Our goal is to keep it realistic. Thus, no need for the bite suit. As you will see in the example videos, we have created a way to help ensure decoy safety yet give a realistic picture of the dog's performance. If you choose to use a bite suit, standard bite equipment or are mandated to do so, it's ok by us.
For your patrol apprehension video, if most of what your department sees on the street is traffic stops, then you can set up a realistic traffic scenario with apprehension for that video.
The Big Question? "How do you prove to a court that you didn't take 6 tries before you got the one video?"
Simple Answer: Doing a video cert is no different from training your dog over and over again leading up to the cert or no different than an attorney rehearsing and practicing for a case. No Ego At NCATS, we work for you. You tell us what you want us to audit. We will provide a non-bias, qualified auditor, and help you when needed for liability. We want to make this process as easy for you as possible. The less time you spend on "certification" the more time you can spend on the street, doing your job…Saving Lives!
