Tell City’s new police canine is on patrol, ready to serve and protect and, when called upon, to take a bite out of crime.
Piko (pronounced Pee-Ko) is a 16-month-old German shepherd born in Slovakia. He and Patrolman Jason Shadwick graduated Nov. 17 from Top Dogs K9 School in Evansville. Shadwick called the six weeks of training one of the most challenging experiences of his career.
