Local K9 team gains national recognition
WACO -- A local police team is getting national recognition and one of it's members has four legs.
Last week Temple Police Officer Jim Rankin and his K9 partner Cyrus, competed at a training conference in Mississippi.
Rankin and Cyrus, a six-year-old pit bull mix and a shelter rescue dog, placed fifth in the nation for narcotics detection.
They competed against 100 other teams across the country.
The pair have been working together for four years.
