Sardis City to get bomb-sniffing dog

Posted: Wednesday, October 3, 2012 3:20 pm

    The previous comments are a great example of only reading the headline & not the article. It explains what they *would have had to pay* for the dog & training; the dog & officer will be an resource available to area law enforcement agencies; etc. I think it's a great use of FREE resources available to our local law enforcement agencies, especially in this day & time. If something happened in your community, would you REALLY want to delay their response because they had to call-in resources from somewhere further away?
