Center Grove Schools Hire K-9 Officer

Last updated on Tuesday, June 18, 2013

(GREENWOOD) - A Johnson County school system is hiring a four-legged police officer.

Center Grove schools is in the process of hiring a police dog that specializes in searching for drugs, the Daily Journal reports.

The school system has hired 17-month-old Duxo, a Dutch shepherd.

Duxo will be available every day to search schools for drugs and to take part in presentations to elementary school students. Before the hiring of Duxo, Center Grove's middle and high schools were searched by Johnson County Sheriff's Office's K-9 about twice a year.

Now, the searches can happen at any time, and it gives time back to Johnson County authorities.

Center Grove is the only school system in Johnson County that has its own police department.
