Back to school means back to work for KCSO dog Elsa
Drug Dog Elsa
Kershaw County Sheriffs Office (KCSO) Sgt. Mike Lyons takes KCSO K-9 drug dog Elsa on rounds through the Lugoff-Elgin Middle School parking lot Monday, the first day of school for county students. Elsa is now fully trained to detect not only marijuana, but coke, crack, heroin, methamphetamine and ecstasy. Her reward for her hard work: playing with her favorite toy. - photo by Gary Phillips
