Springfield Township Police K-9 Program
In April of 2011, the Springfield Township Police Department, with the assistance of donations from the Springfield Township community, launched their K-9 Program. K-9 Handler Glenn Corey completed a two month intense training program where he was introduced to K-9 Dany. Dany is a 5-year-old Belgian Malinois who began training in the Czech Republic since he was 4 weeks old. He continued training till he was 2 years old in the Czech Republic at which point he was sent to the U.S. to continue training at Shallow Creek Kennels in Sharpsville, PA.
Dany is a dual purpose patrol dog. He is certified on narcotics as well as patrol work, tracking, building/area searches and criminal apprehension. K-9 Dany and K-9 Handler Corey have continued their training on a daily basis as well as monthly organized trainings in the area.
Both K-9 Handler Corey and K-9 Dany have extensive experience in law enforcement. K-9 Dany is a member of the Northern Ohio Fugitive Task Force. K-9 Handler Corey has been in law enforcement for 11 years, with 7 of those as a patrolman with the Springfield Township Police Department.
