K-9 A Hero!
September 12, 2016
Zorro’s special talents made a critical difference in a September 2015 incident. Officers were called to a traffic crash, but before they arrived, an intoxicated person ran from the scene on foot. The K-9 was able to track the person to a wooded area, where he was found unconscious. Officers removed him, and he received medical treatment.
Zorro’s handler, Officer Harlow, said she does not believe they would have located the person without the K-9, because of the dense wooded area in which he was hidden.
On Wednesday, June 10th, Zorro the newest member of the police department was sworn in at the Township Trustees Meeting. Dr. Jason Thorn from the Dixie Veterinary Clinic presented Police Chief Cresie with a check for $1000 to buy a bullet and stab resistant vest for Zorro. Dr. Thorn and his staff has been wonderful supporters of the police department and the canine program, and he raised the money for the vest through donations from the community. We are very appreciative of all the support for Zorro and the police department.
