Trained bloodhounds make communities safer

By Matthew Margolis
Deseret Morning News

"Police bloodhounds to track criminals."

That was the headline of the Aug. 31, 1907, edition of The New York Times. The city's detectives were frustrated by the Long Island murder of 15-year-old Amelia Staffeldt and the wave of crime that followed. The Times reported, "The bloodhounds will go on duty before Winter sets in, and police stations in the sparsely settled environs of Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island will have kennels annexed."
