SECOND POLICE DOG GOES ON PATROL

Draco, the city's second police dog, will start patrolling for the first time today with his handler, Officer Stephen Reed.

Draco, a German shepherd, just completed a 13-week training course at the Niagara Regional Police Canine Center in Virgil, Ont., and graduated Thursday.

Reed said Draco will alternate 8 p.m. to 4 a.m. shifts with the city's other police dog, Shanko, who started working July 3 with Officer Shawn Larrabee.
