The Tuscola County Sheriff’s Office wants to introduce you to the newest member of their team!
K9 Officer Blek arrived Friday. He’s a 13-month-old Dutch Shepherd whose main mission will be to search for people, such as lost children and special needs adults – or suspects who need to be tracked.
Blek and his handler, Deputy Ryan Robinson, will be leaving for a five-week intensive training program.
Blek will also be cross-trained for explosive detection as well.
The sheriff’s office said Blek was mostly paid for by a Homeland Security grant.
