NEW K-9 OFFICER
There’s a new K-9 officer in the Plymouth County Sheriff’s Department. Deputy Kyl Petersen is now on patrol with K-9 Zeke, a Belgian Malinois.
Deputy Petersen says he and Zeke have been training together for about a year and a half.
He trains with Zeke by themselves, but also with other K-9 officers.
The Belgian Malinois is perfect for law enforcement.
Deputy Petersen says Zeke has basic certification, passing his patrol trials.
Zeke replaces the Plymouth County Sheriffs Department’s previous canine, which served for nine years with Sgt Jake Wingert.
Sheriff Jeff Te Brink wants to add another K-9 to the force.
