HARRISBURG, Pa. — The Susquehanna Township Police Department has been bolstered by the arrival of two new K-9 officers, the department announced this week.
K-9 Officers "Indy" and "Ghost", who are from Europe, recently joined the force, the department said.
Indy is partnered with Officer Tyler Parrey, while Ghost will work with Officer David Yanich, according to the department.
After they complete their graduate on Oct. 10, the K-9 officers join Auggie, who is already a member of the department.
The new K-9 officers will soon be on patrol in the township. They will assist the police department in investigations and help older adults and those with Alzheimer's, according to Captain Jason Reber of the Susquehanna Township Police Department.
The department's K-9 unit was recently relaunched which has been overwhelmingly supported by funds raised by the community, Reber said.
"We are still accepting donations for our Canine Program," the department said. "Please send donations to the 'Susquehanna Township Police K-9 fund,' at 1900 Linglestown Road Hbg Pa 17110.
