MEDINA – Bill Leggett’s Electricity/Electronics students at the Orleans Career and Technical Education Center occasionally take on projects to help out those in the community.

Recently Medina K-9 Officer Todd Draper asked if the class could help him and his four legged partner, Kye. A device they use for narcotics odor recognition was malfunctioning.

“It was battery operated and in need of repair,” said Mr. Leggett.  “Several students worked on it and were able to fix it for Officers Draper and Kye.”

Kye, a Belgian Malinois, has been part of the Medina Police Department since 2012, working with Draper, who is the dog’s handler.
