The Richland 1 faculty board is contemplating bringing in specially bred and educated canine to sniff out what one commissioner calls “a high degree of drug trafficking in our faculties.”
The proposal, made by Commissioner Cheryl Harris, would come with sweeping the parking zone and hallways with drug-sniffing canine. The early-stage proposal does not embrace details corresponding to value, whether or not the district would buy a canine or contract with an area police division, or how typically the sweeps can be accomplished.
“I’m one hundred pc towards canine around our college students,” Harris stated throughout last week’s faculty board meeting. “However I do consider there are opportunities…We must be in these parking tons where these deals are being accomplished. We do have to undergo these halls.”
Commissioner Beatrice King stated she would help using drug-sniffing canine.
