Tiffin, Ohio — Area law enforcement officials conducted “K-9 demonstrations” with the third grade class at Krout Elementary School on Tuesday.

The Seneca County Sheriff’s Office, along with the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office, used the opportunity to teach students about specific disciplines that the dogs have been trained in for law enforcement purposes.

According to a release from the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office, the demonstrations are geared towards youth in order to spread a positive message. The demonstrations are also designed to showcase the efforts and training of K-9 units within law enforcement agencies.

By doing these demonstrations, law enforcement is able to educate the public about the challenges faced by police officers, and reassure citizens that dedicated officers and innovative programs like these are working together to combat crime in the community.

“It’s a fun, informative, and great way to spread a positive message,” Seneca County Sheriff Fred Stevens said in the release.

“With all the negativity and chaos that surrounds our children these days, it’s imperative for law enforcement to maintain a positive relationship with the children throughout our community,” Stevens said. “I believe these demonstrations deliver a message that really hits home. I would like to thank the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office for allowing us to utilize their K-9 handlers.”
