yes ive had Yes i have had a friend get in serious trouble because of police sniffer dogs at the entrance of Boomtown, and another couple caught out and prosecuted at Bestival. Plus reports of them going undercover in fancy dress and asking people for drugs, then arresting them if they go along with it. cunts. Although i havent been through the pedestrian gates in a good while, i couldnt help but notice the dogs on the gates this year were security dogs, rather than police. I seem to recall it used to be a couple of plain clothed police handlers with a couple of dogs at the main entrance, but this year security guards with dogs at all entrances. Im thinking security ones arent quite as well trained, and its more for show, or to scare people into handing over their stash on demand if they look shifty? if so, i think this system is much more agreeable than the police nabbing 50 odd people at the entrance and them getting prosecuted or cautioned.
