**WELCOME** Recently a new face has been around the Seymour Police Department, and his accomplishments are already piling up! After completing 6 weeks of rigorous training with his new partner Officer Devlin McMindes at Vohne Liche Kennels, K9 Officer Edi, certified dual-purpose working dog, was ready to hit the streets of Seymour. In only a few weeks, K9 Edi's impact has proven to be undeniable. His accomplishments in this short amount of time include contributing to several arrests during separate incidences for possession of Methamphetamine, Illegal Narcotics, Marijuana, Syringes, and Drug Paraphernalia stemming from vehicle searches. Edi has also been utilized in a number of building searches. He has successfully located a wanted felon in the attic of a residence. Edi's presence alone was enough to convince the man to surrender, ending what could have been a dangerous situation peacefully. K9 Edi will continue to train and grow throughout his career at the Seymour Police Department and will undoubtedly be one of the most valuable assets available to our officers and community. Welcome Edi! We look forward to seeing all of your accomplishments in the future!

**FLAG DAY** Today we honor Old Glory on National Flag Day. This day commemorates the adoption of the United States flag on June 14, 1777. On May 30, 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation deeming June 14 as Flag Day. President Wilson stated, “It is the anniversary of the day upon which the flag of the United States was adopted by the Congress as the emblem of the Union.” He also wrote, “On that day rededicate ourselves to the nation, ‘one and inseparable’ from which every thought that is not worthy of our fathers’ first vows in independence, liberty, and right shall be excluded and in which we shall stand with united hearts.”
