MONA SHORES, Mich. (WOTV) - Thanks to a donation from Complete K9 of Norton Shores, detection dogs are now on sight at Mona Shores middle and high schools on a regular basis. Complete K9 of Norton Shores is providing a year of service free of charge as it gears up to market its detection services to schools throughout the area.
Owner, Kevin Kinker, has several trained German Shepherd and Belgian Malinois dogs that can variously detect guns, narcotics or alcohol. Kevin and his dogs not only visit the schools on a regular basis, he also parks his vehicle in front of the schools to keep students guessing when actual searches of lockers and parking lots will take place.
The intent of having the dogs on the schools campuses is to ensure a clean, safe environment for the students.
Maranda caught up with teachers and students from Comstock Public Schools to learn about their career readiness academy.
