K-9 Officer Joins Junction City Police

The Junction City Police Department is welcoming its newest member to the force. It’s one that sheds a lot and has a pretty fierce bite.

Ike, a Belgian malinois, is already making a lot of noise on his first day.

“He’s a very personable dog.  He’s very friendly,” said Chuck Salsbury, Junction City Police.

Once he hears his call from his partner and caretaker, he’s off to work taking down the bad guys, one bite at a time, which is something the the Junction City Police Department has waited for for a long time.

“We had to wait 45 minutes. I mean, we’re quite a distance from Eugene and Springfield,” Salsbury said.

But they won’t have to wait anymore.  After some officers involved with Eugene’s K-9 units heard Junction City needed a dog, they were able to donate Ike.  They say that will allow Junction City Police to cover ground they normally couldn’t.
