Students present canine training obstacle to sheriff's office
JACKSONVILLE, Onslow County - Two Onslow County high schools presented several canine training obstacles to the Onslow County Sheriff's Office Thursday.
The obstacles will be used for training police canines who serve the public.
The project is a joint effort between the wood shops of two Onslow County high schools and the sheriff's office. Dixon High School and Southwest High School faculty got raw material provided to them by OCSO K9 training staff.
Students, with the help of staff members, turned the raw materials into training aids for use by canine handlers who will use them to train their working dogs.
The presentation was at the Fire and LE training facility on Georgetown Road in Jacksonville.
