Local News

The Wheeling Police Department has added a new member to their canine unit – Ozzy!

Ozzy is a 15 month old German Shepherd who is taking the place of Declan.

He is an explosives detection dog and Wheeling Chief of Police Shawn Schwertfeger says he is a necessary addition to the team.

“I think it’s a great community resource to have an explosives detection dog as Ozzy is. We were very fortunate in this case.”

Chief Schwertfeger also wanted to thank the community sponsors who made this all possible.
