Red Ribbon K-9 Assembly

Submitted by dorie.thatcher on Thu, 11/03/2016 - 08:57

Salem Elementary students were introduced to Salem City's K-9 unit Officer Greg Smith and his dog MJ, as well as Utah County Sherriff Officer Justin Gordon and his k9 drug dog Blitz.  They demonstrated how they work together to keep our community safe.  Blitz and MJ are both full of energy and very playful, but will instantly drop any play toy to respond to the command of their partner.  They showed us how they can work together to sniff out drugs.  They also showed us how Blitz, upon command, will protect his partner from a bad guy. Thanks to Officer Dallin Marbery for wearing the bite suit and helping to demonstrate.  It was very educaitonal and entertaining. We appreciate our law enforcement officers and the sacrifices they make to keep our communities safe
