Door County Sheriff’s Office Raising Money for New K-9 Police Dogs

Acquiring and training the dogs are just the first steps in their funding — for Odinn, the foundation also supported veterinary services and safety equipment. “The Door County Sheriff’s Department knows Odinn will not be easily replaced but is determined to fill his paws with two new K-9 deputies with the help of the Crime Prevention Foundation,” the foundation website states. The first police dog’s training is planned to be similar to Odinn’s with detection, patrol work and, if necessary, apprehending and subduing a suspect. 

A tree was planted in Odinn’s honor in front of the Justice Center. In 2017, the foundation helped the office get their first police dog in over 30 years: a black German Shepard named Odinn, according to the Door County K9 Odinn Facebook page. He served the community with his handler, Deputy Matt Tassoul, for almost four years before his untimely death in June due to cancer.

Earlier this month, the sheriff’s office announced its fundraising efforts for a new police dog, and also add a second dog to the team after Odinn left the office with “big paws to fill.” Funds have gone towards school resource officers, the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) program, the annual Chop N’ Shop with a Cop Christmas event for elementary school children and specialized training and equipment for officers.

The other dog will only be trained in tracking and detection to assist with missing persons and drug detection cases, as well as community service.
