The Morning Brew: Oklahoma County jail gets a K9; Fallin ranked most unpopular governor
Jail dog begins work
The Oklahoma County Jail has a new option when it comes to sniffing out trouble at the facility. A dog. The Oklahoman's K.S. McNutt takes a look at the jail's newest officer.
The newest officer at the Oklahoma County jail is doing the work of two or three people in a fraction of the time.
Han is a contraband-sniffing German shepherd who searches jail cells for drugs, cellphones and other smuggled items. He's been on the job about a month with his handler and partner Sgt. Curtis Whittington.
Searching a single cell can take two or three officers 5 to 10 minutes, but Han can complete the search in 30 seconds with more accuracy, jail officials said.
He proved his skill on his first visit to the jail to meet staff by hitting on a small amount of marijuana.

Term-limited Gov. Mary Fallin will be out after November, but in her final stretch in the Oklahoma governor's mansion, she edged out Gov. Dan Malloy (D-Conn.) to become the nation's most unpopular governor for the first time since her election.
