Abstract

This article aims to determine the 10-year impact of the Colombian National Police's canine human remains detection teams since the dog-guide partnership protocol was initiated in 2007. Five partnerships that have carried out searches in various Colombian regions were used to establish the environmental factors, type of terrain, the possible criminal group involved, and geographic location, among many other variables involved in the searches, carried out in natural disasters, disappearances, and associated crimes. As a result of analyzing of these scenarios, a contribution is made to the strategy for addressing murders and disappearances and finding material evidence for justice.
