Sniffer dogs in schools

From Nine To Noon, 9:44 am on 13 October 2011

The police say they can no longer agree to schools' requests to carry out random drug dog searches after a new legal opinion saying the practice - something they've been doing for years - is illegal. We hear from the President of the Secondary Principals' Association, Patrick Walsh; Detective Inspector at Police National Headquarters, Paul Berry; and a solicitor at Youth Law, Joanna Maskell.
