Public invited to welcome two new police canines
New Berlin -- The New Berlin Police Department will welcome its two new police canines with a swearing-in ceremony, tonight at 6:30 p.m. It'll be located in the municipal courtroom in the Public Safety Building, 16300 W. National Avenue in New Berlin.
Earlier this year, the police department initiated a fundraiser for the canine program in the hopes of getting one dog. Through community donations and a generous donation from Mr. Stan Kass, the department was able to purchase two canines, Argo and Condor.
Argo and his handler, Officer Rick Helm, and Condor and his partner, Officer J.J. Ament, will be present. There will also be a retirement ceremony for Sgt. Kevin Turner's former canine partner, Bac, who retired earlier this year.
The public is invited and encouraged to attend to meet New Berlin's two newest officers and bid a happy and long retirement to another.
