Police dog is truly a Hero for Beaver Township cops

Staff report

BEAVER TOWNSHIP

This holiday season, Beaver Township is thankful for a new police dog — and, in a way, for the criminals who paid for him.

Hero, a 90-pound German shepherd, hit the streets with Officer Chris Albert in late October. Chief Carl Frost said the dog was purchased using seized and forfeited funds from criminal investigations.

The total cost of the dog, training and equipment was about $15,000, Frost said.

Albert, a Beaver Township officer since 2005, is a first-time police dog handler.

Read all about the Beaver Township Police Department’s new police dog named Hero on Monday in The Vindicator and on Vindy.com.
