St. Louis County Welcomes New K-9 Patrol Dog
You could say that the St. Louis County Sheriff's office has gone to the dogs - literally. This week, the sheriff's office welcomed a brand new member: K-9 Wesson. Hailing from the Czech Republic, K-9 Wesson serves dual purposes with the force: narcotics detection as well as search and apprehension.
Wesson recently completed a 12-week training program and is now certified to work patrol, partnered with Deputy Ryan Smith. Their territory is mainly northern St. Louis County.
The purchase and training of K-9 Wesson was partly funded by the AMSOIL Northland Law Enforcement K-9 Foundation; A donation of $7,500 was made to St. Louis County. You can learn more and donate to the foundation's cause by visiting their website.
