Rockford police show families K-9 demonstration at a local museum
ROCKFORD (WREX) -
Rockford families got their money's worth at a local museum that featured an out-of-the-ordinary display.
Rockford police stopped by the Discovery Center Museum Saturday afternoon to show residents a K-9 demonstration.
Sulley, the dog showed how he takes down the bad guys, but of course, posed for pictures afterwards.
Officer Jesse Geiken said the K-9 unit is usually behind the scenes, so it was nice to show people what it is they do.
"Our dogs are very, very highly trained," said Officer Geiken. "And as you saw they can come up and we can take pictures and do stuff with them like that, and they know when its time to work and when its time to have fun."
Officer Geiken says that K-9 dogs are more important to the Rockford Police Department than most people realize.
