Rosemarie Sutkowski and Trooper

We see them on the news and in movies and TV shows. We read about them when they come on scene in crime novels. But what do we really know about cadaver dogs and their handlers? I thought I knew until Rosemarie Sutkowski, one of the Sisters in Crime in the Atlanta Chapter, showed up.

Did you know that handlers of dogs trained in Human Remains Detection, as well as those canine handlers involved in the various types of search and rescue, are volunteers who fully bear the cost of training, certification, travel, insurance, vet bills, food, and other costs with little to no reimbursement coming from law enforcement agencies that request their help? I did not until Rosemarie showed up.
