Police dog Kimbo burst out of the back seat of Cpl. Jessica Kraft's vehicle last week ready to assist Kraft as she demonstrated the canine's finely-tuned search and rescue skills. The watching students were enthralled, trying to decide how the dog got out of the car and how it knew to come immediately to her rescue. The demonstration by the North Georgia K-9 Task Force, a part of the Dawson County Sheriff's Office, was one of many events during last week's Junior Law Enforcement Academy at Dawson County Middle School.
