The Huron Township Police Department conducted a proactive K9 search within Summit Academy Schools on Friday, March 13. The Michigan State Police Canine Unit also assisted with the search.
Huron Police Chief Everette Robbins said that the search was not in response to any particular incident or ongoing problem, but it was a random proactive search.
Robbins said that the search was focused on the lockers within the school and the student vehicles. No students were searched, he said.
No drugs were located within the school or in any of the student vehicles.
“Our goal, as always, is to be proactive rather than reactive in our community. We appreciate the cooperation of the Summit Academy staff. They have a great school system and we are proud that they passed this test,” said Robbins.
“We are very appreciative of the Michigan State Police Canine Unit. Outside partnerships that benefit our community remains a priority, we cannot thank them enough for helping keep our children safe,” he said.
