According to Cherokee County Sheriff Jeff Shaver, investigators and K-9 Keelo celebrated Red Ribbon Week with grades 3 through 6 at Sand Rock Elementary School this week.
The first National Red Ribbon Celebration was sponsored by the National Family Partnership in 1998. Today the Red Ribbon serves as a catalyst to mobilize communities, educate youth, and encourage participation in drug prevention activities. Since that time the campaign has reached millions of U.S. children and families.
School officials requested the Sheriff’s Office investigators bring Keelo to discuss the dangers of illegal drugs. Investigators also informed students how Keelo is used to combat illegal drugs in Cherokee County. Keelo began working for the Sheriff’s Office about a year and a half ago. During that short span, her efforts have led to around 100 drug cases.
Sheriff Shaver stated he is glad that the Sheriff’s Office was able to participate in Red Ribbon Week, and he hopes the program will help prevent our county’s youth from trying illegal drugs.
