WATCH: Police Department To Add A New “Officer” To The Force

Charles City, IA –  The Charles City Police Department is adding someone to the force, though it’s not a person.

A man’s best friend? Yes- a man’s best friend.    Jordy, the rescued-dutch shepard is nearly five feet tall and is almost ready to come home. Police Chief Hugh Anderson says a canine on the police force is a deterrent for crime.  

Jordy’s handler will be Canine Officer Dario Gamino.  Gamino says he’s looking forward to the added responsibility.

Gamino and Jordy will head to Des Moines for training and you should see both of them on the force towards the end of August.  Then Gamino and Jordy will head to Des Moines for training and you should see both of them on the force towards the end of August.
