Dachshunds on duty
Anyone who’s been through airport security is used to seeing German shepherds and labradors donning the uniform, but South Australian police on Thursday announced sausage dogs were joining their dog squad.

“We’re … going to be able to attach them to drones and that’s really a game-changer for us. They can be tactically deployed from that – you know, dropped down into people’s yards,” Sgt Simon Rosenhahn said in a promotional video featuring the policeman cuddling up to the new recruits.




“It’s been really hard work lifting those 40kg shepherds, especially above your head, into ceiling spaces,” Rosenhahn said while demonstrating lifting a dachshund towards an air vent.

idk, Sir Furry...attaching the little dogs to drones and dropping them down into people's yards? What are they looking for? Are they helping people, or is this part of the ever-intensifying surveillance and intrusiveness into our lives? I don't want 'em sniffing around MY yard, no thank you.

What date was it posted?

Well...I looked at the YT video again, and it was posted this last March 31. And they are talking about urban search and guided evacuation, so that sounds okay like they might use the dogs to find people during those terrible bush fires. 

But they also talk about lifting 'em to search the air vents...that STILL sounds rather intrusive.
