"Zebras," by Stacy Woodson, in The Tattered Blue Line: Short Stories of Contemporary Policing, edited by Frank Zafiro, Code 4 Press, 2022.
An epistolary story set in a school Makes me think of Up the Down Staircase. But this one uses mostly email instead of memos.
K-9 Officer Bradley is assigned to an elementary school as a resource officer, largely because his charge,k Boomer, flunked his test as a drug-sniffing dog. Now Bradley is using the pooch to try to make connections with the kids. And Boomer starts getting disturbing letters from a third-grader. Is she just having every-day kid problems or is something much more serious going on?
This story is something different and I enjoyed it a lot.
