The Jan. 29 article, Drug, police dogs in a science project, seemed to hint at a sinister practice, in line with the almost daily articles about issues with local law enforcement agencies.
In fact, this is a story of good parenting and teaching as well as good police community relations. No rules were violated, no laws broken and no cocaine was put in the hands of a child.
The story could have presented the positive side by highlighting everything from the admirable level of parental involvement in his child’s education, the police department’s cooperation in the interests of both drug-abuse education and positive roles of law enforcement, the student’s interest in the project and the school’s interest in hosting it.
