Officer Dan Carter and his dog, Jax, are now certified and have begun work at the Galt Police Department.
They complete the two-officer K9 unit, which was non-existent for a couple of months after the death of Officer Kevin Tonn. His dog, Yaro, was retired and now lives with Tonn’s family.
Fellow K9 Officer Brian Nino left the Galt department to take a job in Monterey after his dog, Bo, suffered a career-ending injury. Bo now resides with Nino.
Galt’s other new K9 unit, Officer Nathan Meyerdick and his dog Hunter, started work earlier this month.
