Tommy Crompton said, “A K-9 on the street can help track a lost person, a lost hiker, and if it is a narcotics detection dog, it can be used for the detection of any kind of illegal substance that individuals can transport from one location to another.” Besides the Oconee Sheriff’s Office, participating agencies were the Seneca police, the Anderson Sheriff’s Office, Travelers Rest police, Duncan police, Greenville police, Surfside Beach police, Anderson police, Concord, North Carolina police, and the University of Florida police.
