On Saturday, November 10, 2018, the Lebanon Police Department and West Lebanon Feed and Supply invite the community to meet the newest members of the K9 Unit. Officer Jeremy Perkins and K9 Blesk recently completed training at the Vermont Police Canine Academy, and K9 Blesk is now fully certified in drug detection and patrol work. K9 Blesk was purchased from Connecticut K9 last December after the loss of Officer Perkins’ first K9 partner, Max.
The Department’s newest K9 will be there as well. K9 Nitro and Officer Nick Alden are the newest members to the K9 Unit and will begin their training in January when they attend drug detection school at the Vermont Police Canine Academy. K9 Nitro was purchased from Hop River Shepherds located in Andover, CT.
As part of this event, we will also be collecting wet and dry pet food for our food drive on November 17th to benefit the LISTEN food pantry. You can drop these pet items off at Hannaford on November 17, or at West Lebanon Feed and Supply during this event.
Stop by West Lebanon Feed and Supply on Saturday, November 10th from 10AM to 2PM to meet the newest K9s!
