Knox City Police Department K-9 O’Neill and his handler, Officer Chad Dulin, are halfway through their training. Police Chief Harold Smith told the board of works Wednesday things are going well.
O’Neill is an 18-month-old Belgian Malinois purchased by the department with donated funds raised over the past few months. He will be a certified narcotics dog and will also be able to clear buildings, cars, open fields and wooded areas to locate fleeing suspects when he completes his training at Vohne Liche Kennels near Peru.
