Franklin Co. Sheriff’s Office Receives Grant to be put Toward K9 Officer Training

Franklin Co. – The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office Thursday was the recipient of a grant of $925 from the Law Enforcement Charitable Foundation, Inc. that will allow the sheriff’s office to purchase a bite suit to be incorporated into the training of its K9 Diego. Sheriff David Bartoni says Diego is often deployed to assist in high risk arrests as well as the search for people and articles.  Diego effectiveness in these situations is paramount upon his level and quality of training. With the addition of this training equipment, Bartoni says Diego will be best prepared to produce results when called upon.
