Sheridan Police Departments Cpl. Karla Rogers and K-9 Charlie have been working together on the force since December. Charlie is an almost 2-year old springer spaniel lab and unlike some K-9 units, Charlie only has one job.
Charlie’s job duties end after he has found the substance and he is not trained to subdue suspects. According to Cpl. Rogers, there was a lot of training to get Charlie up to speed.
The other new scent detection K-9 that Sheridan PD has now is a springer spaniel named Colt. Colt is trained to do the same things as Charlie.
