Police showcase K9 skill set during school visits
Waldo County — Students at two local elementary schools learned how officers with the Waldo County Sheriff's Department rely on the talents of a four-legged co-worker who has a nose for crime.
Monday, June 17, Detective Merl Reed, his K9 Neva and Deputy Jordan Tozier visited with students at the Gladys Weymouth School in Morrill, during which the officers demonstrated how Neva helps the officers do their jobs.
Friday, June 12, Reed and Neva, along with Mount View High School Resource Officer Nicholas Oettinger, offered a similar presentation at the Mount View Elementary School in Thorndike
During the demonstrations, students were also invited to check out a police cruiser and ask questions about what it is like to work in law enforcement.
At the Mount View school, 120 students in grades K-5 participated in the event, and at the Weymouth School, Neva and her coworkers offered the presentation to about 110 grade school students.
