Inside CDCR —To highlight CDCR’s dedication to keeping prisons safe, Inside CDCR is starting a series of articles called K-9 of the Month.
The articles will feature the top three CDCR service dogs statewide for the previous month. Each region will have a top dog based on amount of contraband/narcotics found, dedication to service, or wins in law enforcement K-9 competitions.
