Sheridan, Colo. (KDVR) -– K-9 Officer Griggs, a one-year-old Belgian Malinois, has joined Officer Matt Foster to become the first K-9 Unit with the Sheridan Police Department in almost a decade.
“This has been a dream of mine and a goal to bring back (to Sheridan),” said Officer
Matt Foster. “Griggs is going to do a great job here.”
Griggs, a dual-purpose canine, has been trained to locate explosives, shell casings, ammunition, and weapons with his scent ability, providing unique assistance to investigations.
“K-9s help to de-escalate situations,” said Foster. “If someone hears a dog barking, they
are more likely to give up.”
