Officers Josh Templeton and Scott Clain from the California Correctional Center’s Investigative Services Unit, including their K-9 partners, recently visited Stead Elementary School in Reno, Nev., to participate in Nevada Read Week.
There they spoke to a group of students ranging from kindergarten to second grade. The event hosted representatives from various professions who read stories to the children, and gave a short speech describing their professions.
Officers Templeton and Clain read the children “Officer Buckle and Gloria,” a children’s book by Peggy Rathmann, and “Nubs: The Story of a Mutt, a Marine & a Miracle,” a true story of an Iraqi dog of war and Maj. Brian Dennis.
After reading the books, their canine partners Hunter and Joker put on a show by demonstrating their ability to detect cellular phones.
Joker and Hunter were the highlight of the day and their participation was such a success, Officers Templeton, Clain, Joker and Hunter were invited to participate again next year.
