Week four of the Grapevine CPA was held Monday, March 5. Instructors gave an overview of the Street Crimes division, which deals with everything from narcotics trafficking investigations to stolen purses.
Officers in Street Crimes work closely with the K-9 division, especially when narcotics are involved. The dogs are trained to sniff out certain substances, yet ignore others. They also assist their human partners to “bring down” bad guys. This was demonstrated outside, as one officer wore a “bite suit,” while the other officer and his K-9 partner role-played a scenario for the class.
