Meet K-9 Charlie

K-9 Charlie.

That was K-9 Charlie, one of the two new Sheridan Police Department Drug Detection Dogs, saying good morning when he stopped by Sheridan Media’s Public Pulse program Wednesday.

Cpl. Karla Rogers is Charlie’s handler and she explains what a normal work day is like.

Both Charlie and the other K-9 Officer Colt, have been on the force since December and Charlie has already aided in 3 arrests and multiple other calls. Charlie is a labrador/springer spaniel mix that came all the way over from Ireland. According to Sheridan PD Lt. Travis Koltiska, the community support was a big factor in helping them get the dogs.

Koltiska said that there were several generous donors that contributed to getting Charlie and Colt to Sheridan. We will have more from Cpl. Rogers on K-9 Charlie in a later story.
