The Gary Police Department announced today the recent addition of two new members of their K-9 unit. German Shepherds “Ranger” and “Argo” will reportedly assist with narcotics investigations, weapons searches, patrol, tracking and apprehension of suspects, and brings the total number of canines in the department to four, joining veteran K-9's “Dutch” and “Loki”. Deputy Chief Larry McKinley says the new additions allows them to now have one dog on each shift and closer to the ultimate goal of having two dogs per shift. Those who are interested in making a donation or learning more about the fund may contact Corporal John Artibey Jr. at (219) 808-9108. Donations may be sent to P.O. Box 64409, Gary, IN 46401.
