SPENCERVILLE — Chief Darin Cook introduced the newest member of the Spencerville Police Department, K-9 officer Bear, to village council members Monday night.
Cook said Bear is a 1 1/2 year old pure-bred German Shepherd, is passive-alert trained — he will not attack but rather track and sit when he finds what is being tracked — and he will be certified in general patrol, suspect/lost person tracking and drug tracking by October. Bear’s commands will be in German.
