Shaftsbury jumps from no K9 teams to two

After nine months without a K9 team, the Vermont State Police barracks in Shaftsbury now has two — including one of two law enforcement cadaver dogs in the state.

Trooper James Wright and his police dog Harley, a 2-year-old German shepherd, completed cadaver training about a month ago and have already been involved in a number of investigations, including a high-profile case last week searching for a missing 11-year-girl from New Hampshire.

Another K9 unit is also patrolling the streets in the county — Trooper Wayne Godfrey and his 18-month-old German shepherd Tarawa. The pair are a certified drug team and Tarawa has been trained to sniff out seven different drugs. They are completing training for tracking, evidence recovery and aggression at the Vermont Police Academy in Pittsford.
