Upcoming Events

Scent Trailing Bloodhound Presentation

sheriff-logoThe Citrus County Library System is proud to welcome Citrus County Sheriff’s Officer, Nancy Suto, and Linda Boles, bloodhound trainer and owner. Also, meet the beloved bloodhound. Learn the secrets of scent dog training and the unique system of the Sheriff’s department that allows these special dogs to get on the trail of a missing person as soon as the disappearance is reported.  Residents of Citrus County are eligible to receive scent preservation kits that can be used to preserve a person’s individual scent for up to seven years.  The scent from these kits can be used by the tracking dogs to find missing persons more quickly than relying on old clothes or hairbrushes.
