Saugeen Shores Police Service

Press Release

30 December 2008

In 2010 British Columbia is hosting the Winter Olympics. Local police and the RCMP are responsible for providing security for this event. The RCMP has requested assistance from police services across Canada to help. There is a total cost recovery for this assistance; any participating municipalities would bear no expense. At our last police service board meeting one officer was approved to go. An internal competition will determine which officer gets this opportunity.

Titan Update

Titan is recovering well but the veterinarian cannot make a determination yet if he is completely out of the woods and may need a couple more weeks before making any conclusions.

When a police dog retires it is best for the dog to retire to live with his handler. No one knows the dog better and no one can cater to the special needs of that type of K-9. Our current dog handler lives within a built up area in Saugeen Shores and already has two dogs as house pets. Saugeen Shores has a bylaw restricting the number of dogs a household can have to two. The police service board and Chief are currently struggling with a solution. We cannot turn ownership of Titan over to his current handler breaching our own bylaws. We cannot in good faith change a bylaw to fit our needs, it is self serving. We are currently exploring our options and hope to deal with the matter once Titan gets the all clear from the vet.
