MPD Visits St Patrick School

St. Patrick School hosted officers from the Meridian Police Department Tuesday.

Officers gave students a demonstration of what they do every day, including a look at their drug sniffing dog, Rebel, who is from Holland.

MPD officer Rod Brown says she's a great asset to the department, and fun to show off.

"She's made an impact in the community on finding narcotics, and she has done a great job, so we're here today to let the kids take a look at he," said Brown.

Police also talked to the children about being aware of their surroundings, telling their parents if they see something or someone suspicious, and staying away from strangers.
