The Audrain County Sheriff’s Office is announcing the addition of a 2nd K9 to the their department.
Sheriff Matt Oller posted on social media yesterday (Tuesday) that Apollo a 5 year old Belgian Malinois that is certified in narcotics detection, tracking, article detection and apprehension has been easing into training at the Audrain County Sheriff’s Office for about 2 weeks now.
Apollo has spent the last 4 years of his career working for another Missouri Sheriff’s Office, and recent staffing issues caused them to decide Apollo needed a different home.
Sheriff Oller adopted Apollo and the K9 will finish out his career and will retire at the Audrain County Sheriff’s Department.
Oller says Apollo will not see patrol duty everyday, and will remain as a backup to Sergeant Chism and K9 Chal.
