K-9 units a useful tool for county

Whether it was finding a baggie of heroin concealed in a milkshake, sniffing out more than 200 pounds of drugs during the course of the year or chasing two squatters out of a Neenah residence solely by barking, K-9 units have become valuable tools for Winnebago County law enforcement agencies.

“They’re very good at what they do,” said Brad Dunlap, executive director for the Lake Winnebago Area Metropolitan Enforcement Group.

The Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office and the MEG both have two dogs to aid officers in investigations. While the MEG K-9s are trained specifically for drug detection, the K-9s at the sheriff’s office are multi-purpose dogs that are trained to search for drugs and people, tracking and handler protection.

MEG and the sheriff’s office initially were able to get the dogs through private donations from citizens.
