"the only way that you are going to get rid of the drugs is to have a dog here to keep them from bringing it to this town" Wow, how naive. The owner saying he's spent $15K training the dog should ring some alarm bells. Can these people really be this stupid? There's obviously a story here not being reported.

The vice mayor says the police dog is a liability. Must have a no pursuit policy also to say something ridiculous like that. A police dog is not a liability. A mayor who does not provide money for training to the police department who has equipment like a police dog, swat, continuing training, ect is. It's 2013 ........get real.

It was good to see a community 'out vote' it's stubborn narrow minded leaders. Most city council decisions are driven by petty affiliations and rivalries. No doubt that cop crossed one or two on the council and they decided to get even. Drug dogs are also an effective way of finding drugs quickly in a vehicle or residence that is why police departments use them.

Drug dogs are money machines. A police department along I-44 is notorious for it's drug dog which is trained to "alert" to drugs on cue, which in turn gives police free rein to search anywhere the dog "says."
