In response to Mr. Morey, Sheriff Lansing said the Sheriff's Office has retrofitted one of the cars to be a K-9 car. Mr. Dennis said in the past it has seemed like the dog handler has not been available when needed and how will this be addressed. Sheriff Lansing said this was corrected within the last set of negotiations and included in the schedule. Mr. Dennis said a fundraiser was held in the past and asked where those funds are; Sheriff Lansing responded that those funds are part of this resolution. It was noted that this is a new dog and a new handler.

Ms. Robertson said there were questions in the past about having one dog attached to one person and the distortion of that officer's shift schedule. Sheriff Lansing said that was accommodated in the last contract and he thinks it should take care of the scheduling issue. There will still be one officer assigned.
