Mercer County Top Dogs

(2-28-18) At this past weekend’s WCSM Spring Fling Home and Garden Show  three of Mercer County’s K-9 officers gave a presentation to those in attendance at the event.

Mercer County Sheiff’s Deputy Kevin Wynk and his partner, Franko, were joined by Officer Gabe Bartlett and his partner, Peng, of the Celina Police Department and Sergeant Kyle Dues and his partner, Mojo, of the Coldwater Police Department.

The K-9’s are a vey important part of many law enforcement offices across the US. K’9’s  are trained to assist police and other law-enforcement personnel, including: searching for drugs and explosives, locating missing people, finding crime scene evidence, and protecting their handlers.  Verbal cues and hand gestures are forms of communication between the K-9 and his officer.
