K-9 to Assist in Crimes Against Children, Human Trafficking Cases

Inv. Cassandra Radford-Morris and Oakley.

A new K-9 is set to join the ranks of the Richland County Sheriff’s Department’s pawed patrols.

Oakley, an 18-month-old English Labrador, was introduced on Tuesday at the South Carolina State House by Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott and S.C. Gov. Henry McMaster. Oakley, a female, will be tasked with detecting electronic devices, which are used by offenders of child pornography and human trafficking.
