Handler: Officer Paul Bryant Philadelphia Police Department K-9 Police Academy - Canine Unit

...
Region 6 Officer Paul Bryant & K9 Azeem - Philadelphia, PA On 11-13-2003 the Philadelphia Police Homicide and West Detective Division were investigating a report of a missing male.
...
Azeem and his partner, canine trainer Paul Bryant, 47, were recognized for their work in a high-profile murder investigation in 2002: Azeem, trained to detect cadavers, found the body of a New Jersey mother entombed in a Society Hill apartment building. Immediately after the World Trade Centers were attacked on Sept. 11, 2001, Bryant, Azeem and the Philadelphia K-9 Corps began checking Philadelphia's landmarks to prevent terrorist attacks here. Later in the week, while authorities were still searching for survivors in New York, Bryant put Azeem to work there. "TV didn't show anything what it was really like," Bryant said during an interview in 2002. "It didn't show all the policemen, the firemen. It didn't show the grown men crying. On the first anniversary of the attacks, Azeem and Bryant were honored at Veteran's Stadium. Bryant, accompanied by his canine partner, threw the first ball at a Phillies' game. That year, Bryant and Azeem were recognized for their performances, including their work in a high-profile murder.

Scent training, explains Officer Paul Bryant, head trainer at the canine unit, starts with white towels. The handler and dog play with the towel. Then, the handler hides the towel for the dog to find. Eventually, the towel is sprinkled with black powder - for explosives training - or wrapped around pouches of marijuana - for drug detection. The trainers, who have Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) licenses, plant more potent drugs - cocaine, crack, heroin and methamphetamine - in closed containers. When the dog picks up the scent of, say, heroin, he's egged on. "You've just imprinted his olfactory sense with heroin," Bryant explains. A couple of years ago, Bryant's dog, Azeem, a longhaired, black-and-tan shepherd with strong German lines, became Philadelphia's first dog trained to find dead bodies, one of an exclusive group nationwide that specializes in the job. These dogs can sniff out tissue that's 6 months old, bones that have been buried for 2 years and body parts that are underwater. Says Bryant of the work he does with Azeem: "I do it for closure. If I can help one family say good-bye to someone, if I can do that for one family..." he trails off. Yes, he admits, it's gruesome. But the payoff makes it all worthwhile.

Philadelphia Police Officer Paul Bryant, a full-time dog trainer who has worked with hundreds of teams from 43 agencies, called Martinez and Ricky "one of the best teams I've ever trained."

...
It was Bryant who enlisted their help in Philadelphia on 9/11 when all the national monuments needed to be secured. Later, the two worked at ground zero in Manhattan. Bryant recalled meeting Martinez, then an officer for the Coatesville school district, in 1999, right after Martinez had been given a check to purchase a dog that would be trained for patrol and bomb detection.
...
"I called them up and reminded them what I needed," Bryant said.
