Lt. McPherson and Gus work together to fight
drug crime in our community.
Lieutenant Robert McPherson has been a Police Officer for 16 years. He is currently assigned to as the Second Shift Patrol Lieutenant. He is partnered with "Gus", a 75 pound black lab that was trained in New Smyrna Beach, Florida at Southern Hills Kennels'. Gus is trained to detect marijuana, crack cocaine, heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine and MDMA (Ecstasy). Gus and Lt. McPherson received certification through the American Detection Canine Association in December of 2005 and continuous re-accreditation. Gus is a passive alert trained drug dog. This means when he locates drugs he sits and stares at the area he his detecting the odor of narcotics. Training for Lt. McPherson, the purchase of the drug dog and related equipment was funded through monies seized as a part of drug trafficking arrest made by members of UK Police.
