Police K9 Program
The Roseburg Police department is proud to announce the formation of a K9 Unit. Officer Ryan Dingman, Officer Tyler Goode and Officer Travis Dahl have been selected to be the handlers for the dogs. The K9 teams are now on patrol. The tracking K9s, Iago (Yah-go) and Axel are German Shepherds trained to locate persons and property. The drug detection K9, Trapper, is a Springer Spaniel.
The program has been made possible through donations and grants from local businesses, organizations and individuals. Chief Jim Burge said "We are thrilled with the response from the community." Volunteers have successfully raised fifty thousand dollars and that money will pay for the entire program for the first full year.
Would you like to have a K-9 presentation for your school or civic group? We can schedule this type of event, as our schedule allows. Please email Sergeant Gary Klopfenstein at email@example.com to arrange a presentation.
We now have "Friends of the Roseburg Police K9 Program" hats and shirts available for purchase. You can find the order form by clicking here. Please check out the photos of the shirts and hats by clicking here.
