It didn’t take long for Demo to find what he was looking for. And when he did, the crowd went crazy.
That’s because the Doral K-9 officer discovered an “explosive” with only his nose.
The demonstration was part of Doral’s National Night Out and Back-to-School event Tuesday. Communities around South Florida and nationwide held events Tuesday to bring awareness to crime prevention.
In Doral, hundreds came out for the event, which included a backpack giveaway, bounce houses for kids, police demonstrations and free food. “I think it’s a great idea to have both together,” said Doral resident Robert Lendof, who watched the K-9 demonstration with his 12-year-old daughter Emily.
“I didn’t know the dog’s were that smart,” she said.
Doral Mayor Luigi Boria said marrying the two events together was a “perfect match...We wanted to welcome the new year and acknowledge how important the police department is,” he said.
