Law enforcement takes many forms

(Continued)

It’s a sad commentary on the state of our communities that Ozzie has become a necessary member of the sheriff department’s staff. But we’re glad he’s there. While it wasn’t cheap for the department to set up its K-9 unit, we have no doubt it will have been money well spent. 

“The (drug) problem is definitely here, and it’s expanding and getting worse,” DuMond said. “This dog is going to be an important tool in helping us to address the problem.”

Of course, Ozzie can’t be everywhere at once. Neither can Officer Hilla. But both of them are examples of the variety of tools that modern law enforcement agencies can use to serve the public good.
