Guest Speaker
This writer introduced Off. Mike Finogle, Laconia Police Dept. Canine Unit, to the club. A grant was submitted in 1999 for a dog and training and the program started in 2000. Finogle, a former military dog handler, trained with his German Shepard, Yogi, for a total of 26 weeks at New Hampshire and Massachusetts State Police facilities for patrol and drug detection. Yogi's tasks include searches for lost or missing persons or suspects, evidence detection, suspect apprehension, officer protections, and building searches. The canine unit is available for mutual aid throughout N.H. and into neighboring states. Now aged 4, Yogi was originally purchased for $3000 and undergoes monthly training.
