Walcott police say they are cracking down on drug possessions along Interstate 80 with the help of a new officer and a K-9 friend.

Police say they have made numerous arrests but most went undetected. So in July, they hired an extra officer and Scott County bought a 2 1/2 year-old Czech Shepard named Titan.
     
Walcott police have been using Titan and say he is doing well in drug enforcement. Now, they will start to train him for other assignments.

"At some point, we are going to put a tracker on him to find missing children who have wandered off, or an Alzheimers patient who wandered away or some one gets confused and lost, we can track them down," said Chief Jeff Blake.

Police say they enjoy having Titan around and he even goes home with Chief Blake after a day at work.
