ROCHESTER, Minn. – With drugs becoming more of a problem in this country, especially synthetic ones, many might believe it’s a problem in schools as well.

According to those at the Rochester Police Department who work in the schools, they are not seeing that increase. “We continue to see the use of alcohol by minors, marijuana use, and some of the low level entry drugs,” School Liaison Sergeant, Jennifer Hodgman said.

Police say they want to keep the schools clean and use of illegal drugs as a deterrent for young people. Hodgman says one of the ways they do this is by searching lockers with a K9 unit.
