From MPD:

“Chief Lanier greets the newest member of the Force, Sam. Sam is a bloodhound and is trained to track human scent. While we have several dogs that are trained to conduct human tracks, this dog’s sole purpose is to track people- even over long distances. This will be especially helpful when looking for missing persons.”

      Sing along with me: “Whenever there’s trouble, we’re there on the double. We’re the Bloodhound Gang.”

    Yeah!! If you’ve got the crime, we’ve got the time…. PS – I think it was “321 Contact” rather than the Electric Company? Showing my age. I remember it was a science show but I had to think about the name for a while.
