–The Algona Police Department has a new K-9 Officer on the job. Officer Grant Smith stopped by the KLGA studio with Addy, the newest member of the Algona PD.
Smith says it takes time to find a dog that would make a good K9 Officer.
Smith says Addy just recently finished up part of her training.
While Addy has been certified as a bomb sniffing dog, she will continue with training over the next few months.
Addy will replace Jet, who was retired as a K9 officer when he reached the age of 10 for health reasons. Addy will joins Puma as K9 officers on the Algona Police Department. Puma is a dual-purpose dog trained in narcotics detection and patrol.
