10/20/2009
Sergeant David Beck
Oregon State Police
Drug Dog Program Coordinator
Office: (541) 776-6114 ext. 243

Oregon's police officers can't always find illegal drugs and other evidence on our highways and in our communities without a little help. Man's best friend has proven to be an invaluable resource in helping law enforcement, and the Oregon State Police (OSP) is inviting Jackson County-area media to meet two new OSP drug detection canines that will be stationed at OSP offices in Roseburg and La Grande. These two new dogs will join seven other OSP drug dogs that work with troopers on Oregon's roads.
 
When:
Wednesday, October 21, 2009
10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
 

Where:
Oregon Department of Forestry
5286 Table Rock Road
Central Point, Oregon
 

Who:
OSP Sergeant David Beck, Drug Dog Program Coordinator, will introduce the new dogs; demonstrate how they help detect illegal drugs and other evidence on our highways and in our communities, and answer questions about OSP's program.
 
The new dogs are:
  • "Maree", a 3-year old female Black Labrador assigned to the La Grande Area Command office
  • "Charger", a 3-year old male Black Labrador assigned to the Roseburg Area Command office

 
Additional information and demonstrations will be provided at that time.
