Those who read my story in the September 1 issue ["Prayer about drugs in school"] on the anti-drugs initiative taken by British Headteacher John Falkingham may be interested to know that high-school Heads in a nearby city have now decided to introduce a police sniffer dog programme in their schools along the lines which Mr. Falkingham pioneered.
A local paper, which made this its front page story, reported that 11 schools in Preston were "following the lead set by Garstang High School and Technology College which has allowed sniffer dogs in for the past three years."
In the Sentinel article Mr. Falkingham said that since he introduced sniffer dogs in March 2000, "no drugs have been found on our premises." Hoping for similar good results, the Heads who have now followed his lead said that sniffer dogs represented "a public statement of our determination to prevent the possession of drugs in school and as a warning and deterrent to those pupils who might be tempted to bring drugs in."
