Reidsville, NC-- Students at a Triad elementary school had four legged teachers that taught them some valuable lessons.
It wasn't your average Monday morning at school, especially after Sheriff Page and canine officers, Sgt. Jason Hutchins and Brian Hall showed up. From that point on class went to the dogs.
The deputies and their furry partner "Robbie" demonstrated for students how they utilize K-9s to find illegal drugs, and apprehend fleeing or combative suspects.
Arson K-9 "Phoenix" also made an appearance with handler John Cruise from the Rockingham County Fire Marshall's Office. Phoenix is trained to locate the presence of fire accelerants, such as gasoline, at arson crime scenes and on people.
The lessons and presentations were part of Red Ribbon Week, which is a National commitment towards raising drug awareness in our schools, during which students wear red ribbons with drug free life slogans; decorate doors, and school hallways.
