Four police dogs were brought in by Bergen County Police, working with the county prosecutor’s office and New Milford police. No arrests were made, said borough Police Chief Frank Papapietro.

“The operation was conducted with the full knowledge and support of the High School Administration and District Superintendent,” the chief told CLIFFVIEW PILOT.  “Future similar operations are anticipated.”

Which raises the question: What do YOU think of the practice?
