May 13, 2015 - The Tenaha ISD Police Department is committed to providing the safest environment for our kids to learn and grow. The department has initiated many safety programs over the last few years in order to accomplish this goal. One of these programs is the implementation of a drug free school. With the assistance of Shelby County Constable Bryan Gray and the Panola County K9 deputy Richard Mojica, random drug checks are done on the Tenaha ISD campus. “This is a necessary tool to make sure illegal drugs are not on our campus and identify potential problems”, stated David Jeter, Tenaha ISD Police Chief.
The K9, named Roxie, plays an instrumental role in keeping our schools and communities safer. Roxie is trained to sniff out not only illegal drugs but has the ability to detect pills. Roxie, along with her handler Richard Mojica, are committed to providing safe schools and communities.
