CSU to host K9 demo to promote drug, gun education

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The Residence Life department at Charleston Southern University is hosting a K9 demonstration Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. in the school cafeteria to promote drug and gun education.

According to Jeff Urso, owner of SC K9, a team of Labrador breed dogs will enter the cafeteria at 6:30 p.m. while students are having dinner. Urso said the dogs will demonstrate their ability to detect scents.

SC K9 Detection Services, Inc. provides private and discrete K9 firearm and drug detection services to schools, companies or any other person needing K9 detection services.

CSU officials say the demonstration is being held to "remind students of CSUs policy as well as state law after which the K9 handler demos the dogs ability to detect drugs and guns."

The demonstration is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. in CSU's cafeteria, located inside the Strom Thurmond Center.
