Somerset police to get new K-9 vehicle
When the engine went out on the Somerset Police Department's 2000 Ford Expedition recently, the department was faced with a problem.
It happened that the vehicle was the transport for the K-9 unit: Sgt. Mike Kappers and dog Xaro.
The vehicle was not scheduled to be replaced until 2012, but at the Village of Somerset Board meeting on July 21, they decided to move up the date.
Police Chief Doug Briggs told the board that selecting the vehicle was tricky.
