CHATHAM, NJ - The Chatham Board of Education gave its approval for a random canine search of Chatham High for drugs during the 2016-2017 school year at its regular meeting held Monday night.

It is the second straight year that the board has approved of the program offered by the Morris County Prosecutor's Office, in collaboration with the Chatham Township Police Department. Last year, no drugs were found in the random search, according to Chatham Superintendent Dr. Michael LaSusa.

LaSusa explained that four areas of the high school are designated for the search, which covers students from all grades, and at an unannounced time the canine search is conducted. He said the entire search takes about 15 minutes.
