New Cop Has Nose for Job

Max, Jonesboro's new crime dog is on the case.  The 18 month old Asian Malenwail replaces the beloved R-C who died in February.  R-C was known as the face of the Jonesboro police department.  Something now passed on to Max.

John Shipman, Max's trainer, says the new recruits ready to get his paws dirty.  Max's first day on the job was anything but routine.  Shipman was called out to several minor fender benders.  But Shipman and Max are both ready to get into the routine of searching for and finding illegal drugs.

Max will also spend many days visiting local schools.  His first session will be held on Friday at South Elementary.

Max is certified in obedience, narcotics, and handler obedience.
