Police K-9 Purchased to Reduce Drugs in TCC Communities

Written by Communications_Dept on . Posted in All News Items

In February, TCC  joined the Interior Villages Against Meth initiative, set forth by Kelly Fields of Fort Yukon to bring more K-9 drug detection dogs to interior police agencies, in an effort to combat the growing drug epidemic in Alaska.

Since partnering with Kelly, TCC has assisted her project through working with the Alaska State Troopers on purchasing a Belgian Malinois dual purpose dog. In April, the Alaska State Troopers purchased Naja, a two and a half year old K9, for Fairbanks based D Detachment drug unit trooper investigator. The K9 will be stationed at the Fairbanks post and will serve Interior Alaska. Naja and her trooper handler will be going through training together this spring and will begin working early summer. TCC will be working with AST and keeping our tribes informed on the K9 and its training.
