In an additional response to the concerns raised by members over the threat of spiking, we will be working with a specialised passive drug-detection dog over the course of the end of term.

The key focus of the detection dog is to remove opportunity for any individual to carry illicit drugs into the bars and venues and should remove any concern over profiling or discrimination in the attempts to safeguard event attendees.

The dog and its handler will be working at POP! on Wednesday and any indication made by the dog will result in the individual being requested to be searched. Any individual refusing a search will be unable to enter the event.

The dog and its handler will also be present at future SU events on an ad hoc basis without prior warning. They will be accompanied at all times by a member of the SU venue management team and any searches or substances found will be dealt with as per SU Venue policy.

We would ask any member who has a dog allergy, phobia or other dog-related concern to make themselves known to the management team so that we may assist accordingly.
