CANNELTON – Cannelton Police Chief Eric Dickenson introduced a new police dog, coincidentally also named Eric, at city meetings Nov. 8.
Sgt. Lee Hall was to undergo three weeks of training in Kokomo to become the animal’s handler, he explained, with costs covered by grant funding that helped secure the canine.
“The dog knows what he’s doing. It’s Lee that needs the training,” Dickenson said with a smile.
