A team of law enforcement agents — including K9 units — searched the halls, classrooms and parking lots at T.R. Miller High School Thursday, a visible reminder that police are looking for drug activity at schools.
Officers with the Brewton Police Department, Atmore Police Department, Flomaton Police Department and Alabama Department of Corrections were on hand with two K9 units to search the school, Sgt. Bryan Davis said.
The teams also went to Flomaton High School Thursday morning.
K9 units were used to detect the presence of drugs. While a few cars were searched in the parking lot, officers found nothing and made no arrests.
Officers said they want to make sure students know they could search at any time.
Thursday’s search was the first of the new school year, but it won’t be the last, officers said.
Davis said he appreciated the help lent by other departments in the search.
