Chief Holbrook stated in an earlier release, “K-9 Rio was a loyal and faithful K-9 to the HPD and the citizens of Huntington. K-9 Rio not only helped keep our officers safe, but was equally instrumental in our community drug eradication efforts. The HPD K-9 Unit currently has six other K-9’s in service. It is the intention of the department to immediately begin the process of replacing K-9 Rio and returning the K-9 Unit to its full compliment.”
Council committed about $3,500 in micro-grant monies to help replace the animal with a newly trained one.
Outside, the officers showed HNN one of the four legged dogs that fight crime for a pat and a scratch.
