Police ‘K-9’ joins Waynesville Downtown Dog Walk Saturday

“Booger”….LOL! Great name for a K9:)


Capt. Mike Evans and Booger will represent the Haywood County police departments’ K-9 units in Saturday’s Downtown Dog Walk, hosted by Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation.

Evans purchased Booger, a 17-month-old Belgium Malinois, when he was 4 months old.

“I began training him a few weeks after I got him,” Evans said. “Booger is a dual purpose K-9, which means he not only works in narcotics but he also is certified in officer safety. He got his nationally accredited certification when he was 11 months old.

“By the time he was 15 months old he was certified in drug and bite work. However, Booger knows when the work day is over and, like any good officer, he is a friend to people in the community and loves to be around kids.”

Evans donated Booger to the Town of Clyde after he was fully trained. Evans has been a certified canine handler since 1992 with the North American Police Working Dogs Association.


K-9 officers battle heat

The death of an area canine officer shows a challenge for law enforcement in extreme temperatures.

Lucky is officer on the job. “They are invaluable tool to the sheriff’s office and to the community, and makes our job a whole lot easier,” said Officer Matt Evans of his partner.

A Belgian Malinois, Lucky is one of 17 K-9 units in the Knox County Sheriff’s Department. And just like with other deputies, fighting crime in high heat takes its toll.

“We may have extensive building searches, vehicle searches, or tracks, and we never how long that might last,” said Evans. “We try to take extensive breaks, rotate the dogs in and out. Make sure there is plenty of shade, plenty of fresh water around to keep them cool and keep them hydrated.

“I saw the need, and I reacted upon it,” officer Michael K. Neal of the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission said Thursday.

Arkansas Gov. Mike Beebe presented Neal with the Medal of Valor on Thursday for his heroism following the fatal shootings of West Memphis police Sgt. Brandon Paudert and officer Bill Evans on Interstate 40.


Detroit Police Chief Evans to swear in 43 officers today

Police Chief Warren Evans will swear in 43 new police officers this morning even though budget cuts may not allow him to ultimately keep them.

Mayor Dave Bing has proposed cutting $6.8 million from the police department’s budget to help cope with the city’s ongoing money woes. The department may have to cut 100 positions to offset the budget trims, Evans has said.

County recognizes women deputies

Toting guns in their purses, wearing skirts and heels, the first female deputies started patrol work at the Sheriff’s Department in 1972.

On Monday, deputies lined up at Altadena Community Center to salute the trio of women who broke the gender barrier at the sheriff’s Altadena Station: Judy Preimsberger, Judy Evans and the late Charlene “Charlie” Rottler.

“The women on patrol were told to carry their guns in their purses and wear high heels,” recalled Carol Freeman, a retired Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy who was one of 12 women who became patrol deputies that year.
