Officers Want To Get Rid Of New N.C. Dog Search Law

Posted July 6, 2004

— Some North Carolina law enforcement officers want to get rid of a new law about dog searches.

Critics say only sworn officers should be allowed to search for drugs for legal reasons.

The new law is set to take effect in October.
