Williams County Sheriff Getting New K-9

The Williams County Sheriff’s Office received approval on Thurs­day from the county com­mis­sion­ers to begin train­ing a new K-9 team. The Times reports that the com­mis­sion­ers autho­rized $6,000 to be spent before Octo­ber 1st, to include train­ing for both a new dog and a new han­dler. It all came about fol­low­ing the death of one K-9… Ham­mer, and due to the fact that the sec­ond K-9 offi­cer at the Sheriff’s Office, Max, is headed for retire­ment in the next year or two. Addi­tion­ally, Deputy Mic Fris­bie, who has been the canine han­dler in the past, is mov­ing to another depart­ment within the sheriff’s office. Total expense for pur­chas­ing the new dog and other costs related to the three-week class, includ­ing accom­mo­da­tions and trans­porta­tion, are expected to run right around $19,000.
