The Vermilion Police Department (VPD) K-9 Unit was assisted by six additional K-9 Units from surrounding agencies while conducting a K-9 Narcotics Sweep of the Vermilion High School. VPD is pleased to announce that the lockers, bags and vehicles all checked clear for illegal narcotics.

"We congratulate our students for making great choices in maintaining our schools as Drug Free Zones," stated VPD. "We also appreciate the Vermilion School District’s partnership with the VPD in making the safety and security of our students a top priority."

The VPD K-9 Unit conducts random spot checks at the schools on a regular basis and also conducts these coordinated large scale sweeps a couple times per year.
