Photo of the Week: '911, ruff’s your emergency?'
When the chief takes all the dispatchers to lunch in celebration of National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week, someone has to answer the radio!
This week's photo of the week is of K9 Kaizen of the Garden City (Kansas) Police Department who was caught taking a break from chasing bad guys, supporting and hanging out in dispatch, and trying to get extra treats from his fellow officers. Thanks to Erinn Reyes for submitting this pic.
We asked Police1 Facebook, Instagram and YouTube subscribers to suggest a caption for this week's photo and boy did you folks deliver! Thanks to doc jena for the winning headline and Raymond Marzilli for the winning subhead.
