    Police Department K-9 Chase to be Sworn In
    Posted on 07/11/2019
    The newest member to the Pleasant Prairie Police Department will be sworn in during the regularly scheduled Pleasant Prairie Village Board Meeting at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, July 15, at the Pleasant Prairie Village Hall Auditorium located at 9915 39th Avenue (south side of the building).

    K-9 Chase will be accompanied by his handler, Officer Mike Algiers. Chase was brought onto the agency earlier this summer and completed his eight week training with Officer Algiers at the TOPS Kennels in Grayslake, Illinois. K-9 Chase is a full breed German Shepherd from the Czech Republic. K-9 Chase is a multi-purpose dog that has been trained in narcotics detection, tracking, article searches, handler protection, and criminal apprehension. K-9 Chase replaces K-9 Echo who retired late last year after eight years of service to the Pleasant Prairie Police Department.

    “Having a K-9 Unit with so many capabilities has proven to be an extremely valuable resource for the department over the years,” said Chief Smetana, “Obtaining K-9 Chase was a high priority.”
