Last month the Porter City council disbanded the police K-9 unit. However, after a recent meeting the unit and K-9 Q, a 6-year-old German shepherd, are back on the streets, according to Fox 23.

The meeting took into account the opinions of Porter residents, who were more vocal than the board of trustees who originally disbanded the unit.

The main reason cited for bringing back K-9 Q's unit was drug crime and tracking.Handler Officer Lee Phillips was cited as saying, "If you want drugs in your town, then OK get rid of the dog that's fine."

Remarkably, Officer Phillips has spent $15,000 out of his pocket for the dog and his training. So far, Phillips said the community has only paid $95 for transportation to a training class and the class itself.

Excellent news,Porter K9 Unit.

I wish all officers got to experience working with a k9. I makes the potential criminal think twice. I always get asked by the persons who i know are suspicious or up to no good. Does your dog detect drugs? My reply is yes & he bites too.
