K9 teams assist with random narcotics sniff

        Police Service Dog (PSD) teams from Broken Bow Police Department, Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office and Atkinson Police Department assisted Broken Bow Public Schools with a random narcotics sniff

of school property on Oct. 11, 2012. The surprise search was conducted at the request of the school, according to Broken Bow’s K9 Officer Dalen Wood. Two vehicles were investigated but no citations were issued. 

       Officer Wood said the PSD teams checked school lockers and vehicles on the Broken Bow High School campus, as well as vehicles on the public right-of-way.

Vehicles were searched with consent of operators or owners. Officer Wood noted that they like to do these searches periodically as a reminder to students that they are aware that there are issues in the area.         

       Participating PSD team included Officer Wood and Broken Bow Police Service Dog Buddy, Deputy Jeff Gaasch of the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office and his dog, Zeigo, and Officer Louis Genereux of the

Atkinson Police Department and his dog, Marko.

       Photos below show the search in progress.
