More good news! Officer Ashton and his family decided to officially adopt Duke! We think Duke fits right in with his new family! Officer Ashton went to Muncie Animal Care & Services to complete the adoption paperwork. Duke is no longer a shelter dog! Everyone that met Duke this week loved him. Duke is pictured below with Officer Ashton’s family. Duke is in the middle!

Last Friday was a tough shift for some of our officers. Day shift officers were dispatched to an unconscious child. Officer Duncan arrived on scene in under 3 minutes from the time of dispatch. Other officers and EMS/Fire arrived on scene shortly after. The two year old girl was barely breathing and in very bad shape. MPD officers not on scene, as well as Ball State University Police Department blocked intersections as Delaware County Emergency Medical Services transported the child to Ball Memorial Hospital. The child was then taken by helicopter to Riley Hospital. Officers left work that day unsure of the child's condition. The family stayed in contact with Sergeant Kirby giving him daily updates. Today, officers involved in the incident were invited back to the residence. These officers were excited to spend a little time with Lizzie and see that she's doing well! Left to right: Sgt. Kirby, Officer Small, Officer Duncan, K-9 Officer Skaggs, and Investigator Pierce

Duke is still having a good week! One of our officers said he’s seriously considering the idea of adding Duke to his family!

Duke will be at the Muncie PD all week!

Yesterday the Muncie Police Department and Boys & Girls Clubs of Muncie started a week long program. Each organization decided to foster a Muncie Animal Care & Services dog for the week. Pictured below is our dog, Duke. This week Duke will go to work each day at the Muncie PD (office jobs only 😉). Duke will then go home each evening with an MPD family. The Club’s dog, Rambo will do the same at the Boys and Girls Club. We will share more about Duke’s week on this page! For more information on adopting Duke, Rambo, or fostering a shelter dog please contact the shelter!

A huge thanks to - eKeeper Systems - for their generous support of the Muncie Police Department’s initiative to add more K-9 units to the patrol division. Their donation significantly helped purchase K-9 Miso. Miso is assigned to the night shift with his partner Officer Thornton. The pair has only been on patrol for approximately 2 weeks. In that time they have assisted in multiple felony drug arrests. These dogs are crucial in our efforts to remove drugs and drug dealers from our streets. We greatly appreciate the support we received from the community and businesses like Ekeeper!

Boys & Girls Clubs of Muncie CEO, Jason Newman, and Muncie Police Officer, Chase Winkle, just went to meet a couple of special dogs at Muncie Animal Care & Services. Jason and Chase spent about an hour getting to know shelter dogs, Duke and Rambo. Rambo (pictured on the left) is a 3 year old American Bulldog mix. He has a ton of energy! He's housebroken, loves to play, and he's great with kids and cats! Duke (pictured on the right) is about a year old. He's a Pitbull and Labrador mix, we think. He's extremely playful and easy going. Duke is great with kids and other dogs! The Muncie Police Department and Boys & Girls Club have something special planned for these two dogs. Make sure to follow our pages to see what we've got planned!

It’s been a while since we’ve done a K-9 selfie! Here’s Officer Hunter and K-9 Rasse. Rasse and Hunter become partners last fall. Since then the pair has helped make multiple felony drug arrests. Officer Hunter said every time he orders fast food, Rasse tries to steal his food! When Hunter captured this picture, Rasse was trying to steal a french fry with his tongue! #giveRasseafrenchfry am I right!?
