There was a great presentation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives at Bouchercon. They shared about the work they were doing and some of the cases they’d been involved in. Kate Barton was there with her ATF dog, Ting. She did a demonstration with him. They are now using some of the hand signals that people use with field trial dogs so they can give commands silently. At one point in my life I trained a field trial dog, so it was especially interesting to me to see her work. He’s wearing an actual badge on his chest.
