WEST PALM BEACH -- Reporters are invited to a press conference at West Palm Beach Work Release Center on Tuesday, July 27, 2010 at 10 a.m. to see a demonstration of the Department of Corrections’ K-9 Drug Interdiction dogs and handlers, and to hear Corrections Secretary Walter McNeil discuss how the Department is stepping up its efforts to further secure Florida prisons through curbing the introduction of contraband, drugs and cell phones into Florida prisons. The number of Drug Interdiction Teams has more than doubled with the recent addition of 12 new teams of dogs/handlers this year.

Reporters will have the opportunity to talk to Secretary McNeil and photograph or film the demonstration. For more information, contact Communications Director Gretl Plessinger at (850) 488-0420.
