Wasco County Sheriff’s Office Establishing K-9 Unit

The Wasco County Sheriff’s Office is on track to establish a K-9 unit.  Sheriff Lane Magill says they considered a police and narcotics dog combination about a decade ago, but didn’t have the resources at the time.  But changes in law enforcement led him to reconsider it, and now they’ve committed to sending a deputy and a dog to start an eight-week training course in February.  Magill says some recent events led to the decision to move forward on a K-9 unit, noting they have had more pursuit situations in recent months, and need another tool to deal with them.  The initial cost to startup the program is $25,000.  The Sheriff’s Office is taking donations to help defray the cost of the program, those who would like to help can call the Sheriff’s Office at 541-506-2580.
