Anne Arundel County has 12 new law enforcement officers, and six of them are dogs… literally.
Six humans and six canines graduated from Anne Arundel County’s K-9 Academy Friday. They will work for the Anne Arundel County Police Department, the Anne Arundel County Sheriff’s Office and the Annapolis Police Department.
Cpl. Kevin Freeman has been working the streets of Annapolis by himself for 13 years. Now, as a result of the academy, he has a partner.
”They can see better than me, run faster, hear better. He is a great tool for the department as well as me as a partner,” Freeman said.
The K-9 officers can work anywhere in the state if needed. They’re a new group of super cops, and it’s not a good idea to run from them.
“I’ve seen time and time again how valuable K-9s are and how they make a policeman’s job safer,” said Anne Arundel K-9 instructor Brian Fleig.
