Are you kidding me Dept'.....

Sometimes police K-9 don't work out with their handler. This was the case recently with a Clinton PD K-9. NL K-9 Master Trainer T Lynch could of obtained the fully trained K-9 for $1,500. A fraction of the estimated $7,500 a fully trained K-9 costs.
The City balked, and chose not to fill the vacant K-9 position.

That very K-9 recently responded to New London's call for K-9 assistance... Now as a member of the Groton Town Police K-9 team!
