The Mt. Pleasant police force has grown by one, with the new addition of Gerro, a 2-year-old Dutch Shepherd who recently joined the force as part of the new K-9 unit.
Gerro, who is handled and now works with officer George Grippo will be a welcome addition to the force as he adds his expertise to the unit for detection and discovery.
“He’s a good dog and he’s been good to train,” said trainer Mike Garrow who worked with the canine for over six weeks at his training facility located in Charleroi,” he’ll do well with George.”
Officer Grippo received the dog in July and worked with him, first acclimating him to his home and to his family.
