K-9's and their handlers searched all gathering areas such as cafeterias, libraries, gymnasiums, restrooms, weight rooms,lockers, and band rooms. All areas were found to be clear of any type of narcotic that the dogs are trained to detect. Although a long a tedious process, TPSO K-9 Handlers left each school with confidence knowing there were no drugs or contraband in the common areas searched.
“We are committed to being proactive in our efforts to maintain school safety and a drug-free school environment for students," Sheriff Daniel Edwards says. "Throughout the school year, TPSO K-9 teams will continue to be available and utilized as needed to keep our schools safe and free of drugs."
