The Albertville Police Department K-9 unit is at full force once again with one certified and trained team on each shift.
K-9 officer Joey Skaggs and his dog Nitro along with K-9 officer Greg Plunkett and Bok completed training the first week of March, said Police Chief Benny Womack. The handlers trained for 12 weeks in Huntsville, the chief said.
Skaggs is a veteran handler who trained with the department’s newest dog Nitro, who replaced the retired Kilo. Plunkett is the department’s newest handler.
