The newest addition to the Waco ISD Police Department walks on all fours and answers to Gero. The department received a $15,000.00 grant from K9S4COPS and a $5,000.00 donation from the Cen-Tex Kennel Club to fund a Narcotics Detection K9 Unit.
The K9S4COPS Grant and the Cen-Tex Kennel Club Donation was used to supply a narcotics detection dog and the equipment necessary to maintain a K9 Unit. Sergeant Jeff Freeman attended training as part of the grant.
Gero and the K9 Unit will play a major role in the deterrence of illegal drugs on our school campuses, as well as the apprehension of those who are found to be in possession of illegal drugs. The mission of the Waco ISD Police Department is prevention, intervention and enforcement.
