K-9 Unit This has been a very rough year on the K9 Unit. K9 Arie passed away unexpectedly in February. Since then they have had to retire K9’s Axel, K9 Diesel, and most recently K9 Luca. The THPD was able to replace K9 Arie with existing funds. K9 Axel was replaced with funds raised by a local business. Replacing the K-9’s is very expensive and they are a great asset for protecting our community. Questions?
