MPD to get new K-9
Thursday, September 12, 2013 11:00 AM
The Madison Police Department announced Wednesday it will purchase a new K-9 officer.
Maj. Jeremey Perkins said during Wednesday's police merit board meeting that Lt. Rick Mundt will go to Elkhart at the end of the month to begin training with the new K-9.
The dog costs $12,000, which is being covered by donations. Perkins said if there is additional money left over it will be put into a K-9 fund to buy supplies or equipment the department needs for the dog.
The dog is a two-and-a-half-year-old German Shepherd. The dog will be used during traffic stops and for demonstrations in schools.
