The St. Joseph County Police added four new dogs to their K-9 unit, three of which were put into service this week. 

Farkas, Odin, and Monti, underwent six weeks of training where they learned to chase fleeing offenders, and search for narcotics and evidence. Corporal Rachel Harvey and her assigned K-9, Odin will be working afternoon patrol.
