According to Sheriff Gary Ballweg, crime is declining in Michigan, but rising in Delta County.
Law enforcement has a very effective weapon in the constant war of getting narcotics off the street, a police K-9.
“Our dogs are all passive-alert dogs,” explains Deputy Tom Draze of the Menominee County Sheriff Department. “So when they come into the odor of narcotics, they actually sit down. So that’s our indication.”
Five officers practiced with their dogs for real-life situations like searching for hidden stashes of marijuana.
