Below is a press release from Milton Police Chief Dan Layber.
On Friday, May 24, 2013, the Milton Police Department in conjunction with the Milton School District conducted drug dog searches of the Milton High School and Milton Middle School. These were routine searches during which the school parking lots, hallways, lockers and class rooms are searched for illegal drugs. During the searches this morning no drugs or paraphernalia were recovered from school premises. Searches were conducted by Milton Police Officers, along with High School and Middle School staff. The drug dogs were provided by the Janesville Police Department, Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department and the Wisconsin State Patrol. This is an ongoing effort by police and school officials to keep schools safe and to keep drugs out of the school environment.
