Rhinelander PD set to receive second K-9 officer
RHINELANDER - The Rhinelander Police Department will soon receive their second K-9 officer.

The new police dog marks the first donation made by the organization K-9s for Cops. The program provides all of the training needed for the new K-9 officer and their handler at no cost to the police department.

Rhinelander PD's newest addition will be a Belgian Malinois named Jason in honor of Jason Weiland, the Everest Metro Police detective who was shot and killed in the line of duty in Wausau two years ago. The K-9 will not only share Jason's name but also his badge number.

K-9s for Cops is looking to the community to help provide all of the necessary equipment needed for the new K-9 unit including a dedicated vehicle and vet fees. You can find all of the information to donate to the organization below.
