Police dog is truly a Hero for Beaver Township cops
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.
