MILWAUKEE Some things inevitably set Voden apart from his fellow officers at the Milwaukee Police Department - his keen sense of smell, and of course, his four legs and tail.

Chief Nannette Hegerty introduced the latest canine addition to the force Monday. At first glance the nearly 2-year-old German shepherd mix looks like any other dog - barking, sniffing, playing, wagging his tail and protecting his master. Once he's certified in drug detection in August, however, Voden will be able to sniff out marijuana, methamphetamines, cocaine and heroin.
