The Lake Ozark Police Department adds a new officer to the ranks which will, undoubtedly, be valuable in helping to take a bite out of crime.
That’s according to City Administrator Harrison Fry who says the team of K9-Donzi and his handler Corporal Harvey were introduced together during this week’s board of aldermen meeting.
“The officer, Donzi, who was our new K-9 officer, a very handsome Belgian Malinois, came in and got sworn in. I know they’ve been fast at work after they’ve graduated from their canine school together, and Donzi has already been involved in a number of drug interdictions and locating suspects. So he’s a great addition in a very short period of time.”
K9-Donzi is about a year-and-a-half old.
His addition to the force was made possible largely due to community donations.
Fry adds that Donzi will also be a valuable tool when it comes to public relations.
