Marathon County Sheriff's Office Welcomes K-9 Unit


The Marathon County Sheriff's Department is making a new addition to their force. Two k-9 officers were introduced to the community Thursday and both are ready to hit the streets.

The K-9 program has been in the works for a few years, and the handlers already have plans on how the K-9 officers will be put to work.

"We're going to be doing targeted, drug interdictions so these dogs," said K-9 supervisor, Bill Millhausen, "on specific days, and specific times, these dogs are going to be doing nothing but traffic enforcement and drug interdiction."

The K-9 officers and training were paid for by donations but they still need money for the care of the K-9 officers.
