Police explain jobs of canine teams
Representatives from the Schenectady County Sheriff’s K-9 unit will discuss canine work teams on Aug. 24, at 2 p.m., at the Meadows at Glenwyck, 150 Dutch Meadows Lane, Glenville.
Have you ever wondered how law enforcement canine teams find missing persons, detect illicit drugs or explosives, or locate suspects or crime scene evidence? About how law enforcement officers and their four-legged partners work in tandem to keep our communities safe?
The team, which includes Lt. Jason Temple, “Recon” and “Cassie,” Deputy David Leffingwell and “Diesel,” and Deputy Derik Schmidt and “CC,” will also demonstrate how their K-9s search and apprehend with their handlers on the job.
The presentation is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. Seating will be on a first come, first-served basis. Reservations are needed. Call 280-7340.
