Clark Co. School District to use canines to create safer school environment

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Sunday, February 2, 2014 11:05 AM EST

The Clark County Public School District is enlisting the use of canines to help create a safer school environment.

The Winchester Sun reports the board of education approved a measure last week that will partner the school system with K9 Resources, a group that focuses on detection and offers drug-free services to businesses and schools.

K9 Resources uses dogs that have been trained to work with children and are safe in a school environment.

Clark County Superintendent Paul Christy says the dogs can search for not only drugs but other contraband, such as cigarettes or lighters.

Christy says he used the group in three different districts where he has worked and saw a difference in all three.
