This morning, Lakewood Police were called in reference to a missing person in the area of MMCSC, and K9 Mellow was immediately dispatched to assist in the search.
Officer Mellow, led by his handler Officer Conrad, immediately began a track, sniffing out the area.
A short time later, Mellow led police to a street several blocks away, just several hundred feet from the where the missing person was. Volunteers and officers entered a public building, where the missing was located.
“This was exactly what we had in mind when we brought on our K-9 units,” Police Chief Greg Meyer told TLS. “In just two days, Mellow has already proven it can save lives and do other great things – it was well worth the time and effort. Officer Conrad and the others involved in the K-9 unit deserve a lot of credit too.”
“Having our own K-9 lets us respond to emergencies in a quick and efficient manner without delay,” Chief Meyer said.
Since its inception, Lakewood’s K-9 Units, have responded to multiple calls of service, including search warrants, drug arrests, missing persons and more.
