GEORGETOWN -- This officer in Our Town is determined to change an increase of drugs in the area. But, he's not doing it by himself. He has his best friend by his side to help in the cause. WCIA-3's Anthony Antoine introduces us to two officers Behind the Badge, Officer Michael Vice and his K-9, Fido.

Some people don't like the idea of taking work home, but Police Officer Michael Vice loves it.

"I can never get rid of him. He's a good guy at home. He loves the kids at home and they love having him there."

24 hours a day, seven days a week, Fido is by his side.

"On and off the streets, we do something everyday."

Vice got Fido at just five months old and trained him to be a narcotics dog. For two-and-a-half years, he's been patrolling the streets.

"There's a lot of drugs out here. A lot of kids are peer-pressured into trying them at a young age and that's how they get started in them. If we can get as many off the street as we can to help that cause, I think we done good."

They love the community and each other. When they're not fighting crime, they like to hop in the boat and go fishing; spend quality time with the family which makes for good conversation in the car.

"He's a big commitment, but it's fun though."

Officer Vice says his father inspired him to become a police officer. He, too, was a cop in Our Town.
