Columbia Police Officers are routinely removing syringes from sidewalks, ditch lines, parking lots and recently even our parks.
In the latest removal, Officer John Dial and K-9 Gunner were training at a local park.
Gunner immediately went toward playground equipment at the city park and gave a positive hit signal.
When Officer Dial looked to see what had been found he discovered Gunner was actually alerting on syringes on playground equipment.
CPD reminds parents to be vigilant and if you see drugs or drug paraphernalia call 911 immediately.
Columbia Police will come dispose of it properly.
