GIPD Promotes K-9 Unit

4-30-13 - GIPD Drug Dog Demo

 

The Grand Island Police Department is getting another team in its K-9 unit to help locate narcotics, find evidence and perform other duties when out on patrol.

 

Police, city and officials from the Grand Island Community Foundation came to the law enforcement center in Grand Island Tuesday to one of the dogs in action.

 

The foundation provided money for a grant to train the dogs and help the police department's K-9 unit.

Community Foundation CEO Tammy Morris presented the check to Police Chief Steve Lamken and she says it wouldn't have been possible without help from Jackson Dinsdale's fund.

 

Officer Eric Javins handles his dog, Robbey, and he says the 13-week training course is very intensive.

Officer Jeremy Gildersleeve and his dog Noa are currently in training. Officer Javins and Robbey have worked together for five years and continue to serve the police department and community.
