"Kids will know what her capabilities are and (that) will hopefully make a kid think twice before making a poor decision," said Officer Dan Torres.

Omaha Public Schools said Peace isn't a response to any particular incident, but just another addition to make schools safer.

OPD's K-9, Remi, will still visit schools but is trained to detect drugs while Peace will be used to fined possible explosives.
