K-9 Demonstration at Lander a Success!
Lander University held its first major criminal justice themed event on-campus November 6th when it invited the Greenville County Sheriff's K-9 Services Unit to visit the University. Thank you to Sgt. Osborne and Sgt. Wannemacher for making the event such a success. Between 200-300 students, faculty, and staff witnessed the K-9 Services Unit display how their dogs can locate illegal narcotics as well as help with locating people and lost items. Master Deputy Jim Leathers and "Hondo" were definitely the stars of the show as their chemistry and partnership were on full display at the event. This event was held to celebrate Lander University's new B.S. in Criminology program. Lander University is the only public university in South Carolina to offer such a degree. Special thanks go to Chief Eddie Briggs of the Lander University Police Department for all of their help in organizing the event. Read more about the event at GWDToday's website.
