In an effort to resurrect and maintain its K9 program, the Williams City Police Department held its annual golf tournament fundraiser.
“We are so very excited to have Jacco,” said Williams Police Officer and K9 Handler, Jennifer Patterson.
Jacco is an 18-month old Belgian Malinois.
“He has completed his narcotics training and is currently enrolled in patrol and apprehension,” said Officer Patterson.
Although Jacco is a playful dog, he is all about business.
“He wants to work all the time, even on my days off,” said Officer Patterson.
Since his arrival, Jacco has made a few appearances at local schools, but spends most of his time in training.
“He is very social and has a high drive, he love children,” said Officer Patterson.
The Williams K9 Unit will not only benefit the Citizens of Williams, but the entire county, Officer Patterson commented.
“Jacco will be trained in many areas including missing persons search,” said Officer Patterson, “He can assist with search warrants and suspect apprehension.”
The success and amount raised wasn’t immediately available, however, Officer Patterson commented that she was humbled by the support of the community.
“When we asked local businesses for a raffle item or a donation, they were very giving,” said Officer Patterson, “We thank the community for their support.”
