K9 Jano Recovers from Surgery
On August 29th, K9 Jano had to have a mass removed from his leg.  We are happy to report that the biopsy results came back negative for cancer and Jano returned to work in early September.  Jano aided in a 14 mile pursuit of a stolen vehicle out of Olympia.  During the chase the suspects vehicle had mechanical issues and the driver attempted to flee on foot. Although not 100% Jano was still faster than the subject and helped get them in custody.

We're so glad you are healthy and back to work keeping us safe, Jano!
Putting the FUN in Fundraising!
On September 4th the MCSO held a fundraising event for the K9 program presented by Burger Claim in Belfair.
