Bodie is a Black Labrador Retriever from Kirby Mountain Kennels and purchased soley with donated funds. His breed was selected for its great temperament around people and other animals, as well for its great work ethics and ability to track scents. The goal of the St. Johnsbury K9 program is to incorporate Bodie as a member of the community thereby continuing the police department’s long tradition of community policing, reducing drug activity through drug detection, and finding missing and/or lost persons.
Bodie will be mainly around the village of St. Johnsbury but, at times, will be available to assist other agencies throughout the region.
The K9 Program is funded entirely by donations from the community and many area merchants. If you would like to donate to the program, please contact the Chief of Police at 802-748-2314.
