A DOC K-9 and officerAs part of a unit on Working Dogs, St. John the Evangelist Catholic School third grade students had a few special guests: Sgt. Greendoner, Lt. Weakland and Kees of the DOC's Drug Interdiction Unit.

The trio taught the students about their jobs, and kids were able to ask questions and learn about Kees, including:

  • Kees has his own passport because he came from Belgium
  • They train every day to keep up his skills
  • He uses a passive response to alert Greendoner that he's found something
  • He is Keeshond and German Shepherd mix
  • Kees loves his job and is rewarded every time he makes a find!
