Tuesday, November 8, Brockbank fifth-graders had the opportunity to meet Spanish Fork Police Department's K9 dog "Lord" and his trainer/handler Officer Cory Grover. Students got to see some of the things Lord is trained to do in helping in drug detection and apprehension of criminals. Officer Bryon DeWitt who teaches D.A.R.E. to the fifth-graders wore a padded suit so students could see some of Lord's training. The students really enjoyed having Officer Grover come and speak to them and to see Lord.
