Officials say more K-9 units will attend Jamboree in the Hills

Ohio Headlines

It’s that time of year again, Jamboree in the Hills.

This year law enforcement said they’ll have an intense presence in Belmont County.

Officials confirm during the Jamboree, there will be 15 to 20 troopers on the roads, around the clock.

You’ll even see a larger K-9 presence in the area as well.

Belmont County Sheriff Chief Deputy James Zusack said they’re not taking any chances with drugs or other unwanted substances.

“You have to be smart. I know people like to have a good time, but there’s a certain line between a good time and a bad time. The canines will provide an extra tool for us by providing security that humans can’t provide. We’ll have sniffing dogs for particular things such as drugs. We felt we needed to do that,” Zusack said.

He added that officers typically don’t have a lot of incidents, but extra security will be around to make sure everyone has a good time.
