What is going on in that area of town? Stabbings , shooting at officers , break in's, Columbia needs a police dog to go in after these people mayor , we don't see the # 1 cop entering these buildings , why ask your officers too when a good dog is the answer.

I think that the mayor is afraid of dogs , why else would he deprive this town of a drug dog to help make it safe? Dogs work ask towns that have them.

Dogs won't solve the stabbings, the potshots at officers or the break-ins. Dogs are for drugs, first and foremost. I do agree that we need a drug dog in Columbia. But that won't solve all the other crap. And when that doesn't work, then we will be inundated with gossip about the tax dollars going to fund a dog that can't catch someone who shot at someone else.

The last dog Columbia had was privately funded other than the officer's salary, the dog was at the hambones with children and there was no problem other than the kids didn't want to leave. When the mayor got a bug up his but and stopped the program , there was over $50.000 in the k9 account that was given to Hellem for there dog, THANK YOU MAYOR LUTZ..
