OREGON, OH (Toledo News Now) -
The Oregon city council will vote next Monday to approve a contract with a kennel in western Pennsylvania for a K9 to add to the city police force.
The police dog could be patrolling in Oregon by early July.
Sgt. Jeff Martin, a 13-year veteran of the police force, was chosen to be the K9's handler. He has spent the past 10 years handling search-and-rescue dogs and will now become the 24/7 handler of the city's first K9.
The dog won't be selected until Martin goes through training, starting April 8, but he is getting everything in place now. He is even preparing his family and family dog for their newest addition.
Sgt. Martin will keep the K9 at his home on his off-time, and will use him on the job for tracking suspects and for detecting and seizing narcotics.
The Toledo Refining Company donated a $15,000 grant last year to pay for the K9 and its training. Oregon store Pet Fanatics will donate the dog's food.
