Good Dogger!!! (http://www.heraldtribune.com/article/20110801/ARTICLE/110739951/2416/NEWS?Title=Dog-helps-drop-drug-arrests-at-North-Port-High)

NORTH PORT - Drug arrests at North Port High School dropped by 70 percent last year, a decrease not seen anywhere else in the district.

Police in North Port credit the addition of Duke, an 86-pound drug-sniffing Labrador retriever, with deterring drugs at the county's second-largest high school.

"They know he's there," said Police Chief Kevin Vespia. "They know he's going to be snooping in the lockers. That's the message: We don't want you bringing drugs into the school."
