K9 teams check beulah schools
By Chris Erickson
On Thursday afternoon local law enforcement officials from Mercer County Sheriff’s Department and Beulah Police Department did a regular spot check of the high school and middle school. They did so with the help of two four-legged officers, Goliath and Benny.
According to Superintendent Todd Kaylor, the spot checks happen when the building principal decides it’s time to reinforce safety and wellness guidelines.
“A lot of times they’ve come through it’s been for safety,” Kaylor said. “Another reason we do it is to keep our schools drug-free, although that’s just one facet of keeping a drug-free environment. Our building principals work closely with our Sheriff’s Department and local police department. It’s a practiced procedure in all public schools in North Dakota.”
According to Kaylor, no drugs or other contraband were found in either of the school buildings.
