    Massachusetts State Police Media Release – 04152016 – ESD K9 graduates from Connecticut State Police Training

    Trooper Chris MacDonald and ESD K9 Winnie of the MSP Computer Crimes Unit graduated today from the Connecticut State police for electronic storage detection dog. The electronic storage detection (ESD), or computer dogs, are specially trained to locate items associated with computers and cell phones for crime cases. Dr. Jack Hubbal, a chemist at the Connecticut State Police Forensic Lab, was able to isolate a chemical compound,Triphenylphosphine Oxide (TPPO),which is found in phones and computers. Another compound found is, Hydroxycyclohexyl Phenyl Ketone (HPK), which is found on DVD’s, CD’s, and floppy disks. The canine trainers were able use the two compounds to train the dogs in searching for electronics.

    Winnie is the first Massachusetts State Police computer dog to complete the extensive training program and is now certified to start working. According to the trainers, the dog is capable of detecting any kind of electronic storage device including, but not limited to DVD’s, USB drives, hard drives, SD cards, and micro SD cards.
