All in a day's play

Gemma and Sweet Home Police Officer Sasha McDonald have located and seized more than 20 ounces of narcotics from the streets since they went to work earlier this year.
Since April 18, McDonald has deployed Gemma, Sweet Home Police Department's new drug detection dog, 35 times.
She has helped seize $6,835 in cash associated with narcotics, McDonald said.
"She's doing really good," McDonald said. "She gets a little more excited after every deployment."
Gemma has a field reliability rating of 91.87 percent, McDonald said. That means that when she alerts, she finds drugs that frequently.
