situations.

K9 Dice has already received foundation training from Katalyst Kennel, and he and Officer Gallant will finish their training under Sgt Hodgen's guidance in the next few months.

Drug forfeiture funds will sponsor this addition to the canine unit. By having an additional dog specifically tasked with only narcotics detection, we hope to reduce drugs further and increase the safety of our community.

Welcome aboard, Dice!!!
