*** EMPLOYEES OF THE WEEK *** Congratulations to Ptl. Poe and Iron for being the Employees Of The Week. Officer Poe & K9 Iron two successful tracks last week. On Sunday 4/22/18, they were called to assist OSP for a subject who had fled from a vehicle found to have packaged marijuana inside. A lengthy track was conducted and Iron located the suspect hiding, tucked down between multiple pieces of machinery in an outdoor open-air garage. The suspect was arrested and later found to have warrants and a large amount of cash on him. On Thursday, 4/26/18, a juvenile with developmental and behavioral issues left his house on foot after a disagreement with his father. The juvenile was barefoot and did not have on proper clothing for the weather conditions. Ptl. Poe and Iron began a track for the juvenile who was located not far from the house and was returned to his father. These finds demonstrate just how effective our K-9 teams are, great job Officer Poe & K9 Iron! #kentohiopolicek9 #kentohiopolice #kpdohio

Kent PD would like to introduce our newest K9 Officer, Janik (pronounced Yanik). K9 Janik is a 22 month old male German Shepherd. He was selected and paired with Officer Smith in February, out of Von der Haus Gill Kennels, in Wapakoneta, Ohio. Officer Smith and K9 Janik bonded for several weeks before they left for the K9 Academy at Von der Haus Gill Kennels. On April 27th, after a 6 week academy they passed both their State and National certifications and are ready to work the road. Congratulations to Officer Smith and K9 Janik!!! 🐾🐢🐾 #kentohiopolicek9 #kentohiopolice #kpdohio
