MPD K9’s

which includes a series of test, is used to determine if the dog shows the ability to display courage and understanding. These traits are necessary to begin training.

In 1991 the Morristown Police Department’s K9 Division was created. During the years following the program’s inception it is able to proclaim many successful assignments.

Depending on the dog, training begins from 16 months to 2 years of age. During this time they will reside at the homes of their officer/handlers. This is the first step in creating the bond needed for a successful team. Their training consists of instruction in drug and bomb work, area and building search, as well as tracking and crowd control. After completion of a 2 to 5 month course the handler and the dog seek certification as a team. These teams will remain active until the dog’s retirement after 8 to 10 years.

One of the most important parts of a K9 program is choosing the proper dog for the job.This begins with a search at vendors who regularly supply dogs to the department. Breeds most commonly used are Belgian Malinois and the German Shepard. A screening,

Two of the Morristown Police Department’s K9 officers have reached this juncture in their careers and will be retiring this summer, K9 Eryck handled by Sergeant Billy Gulley and K9 Raider handled by Corporal Clyde Short.

Both Eryck and Raider have honorably and consistently executed their training and abilities in providing assistance in numerous drug seizures and felony arrest during their time with the Morristown Police Department. Sergeant Gulley states that one of K9 Eryck’s memorable accomplishments occurred approximately midpoint in his career. In the early hours of a February morning an attempted auto theft took place at a local car dealer’s establishment. On being discovered by the owner the female suspect fled into an adjacent wooded area, bordered by a creek. After many attempts were made with no foreseeable way to cross the creek, Eryck could not tract the suspect. Due to the frigid 15-degree temperatures the decision was made to abort the search. However, Sargent Gulley chose to try one last time taking an alternate direction, which led, around the creek. It was at this point that Eryck found the suspect almost frozen from running through the creek in

an attempt to escape. Even with an impending arrest in the future the suspect was thankful for being found as she felt that Eyrck saved her life. Corporal Short relates a memorable call shared with K9 Raider, began with a domestic disturbance at an apartment complex. An individual with a knife had attempted to break into the home of a tenant with the intent to do physical harm. The search for the suspect centered in a nearby field. Raider was able to track the man and successfully escape serious injury when the man tried to retaliate with the knife that he was wielding. Having Raider at his side provided Corporal Short with protection by his presence alone. Giving them the opportunity to be safe and successful in their partnership. Upon retirement, Eryck and Raider will once again accompany their handlers to the homes that they have grown up in, continuing their roles as members of their families. A well deserved reward for a job well done.

K9 Raider handled by Corporal Clyde Short.

Our Sheriff’s Department’s On

a winter’s night while searching for shelter from the cold, a stray dog found himself outside of Morristown Hamblen Hospital’s emergency room. After observing his new surroundings he noticed the automatic entrance doors. He quickly understood that by standing in a specific place, he could make the doors open. This would make it possible for him to gain entry and escape the frigid night. When the doors opened as he stood waiting, he ventured inside to the warmth that he so desperately needed. However, an animal roaming the halls of a hospital isn’t acceptable by any means, so a call for assistance from the Sheriff ’s Department was made. The hospital’s trespasser was soon taken into custody and escorted to jail. At his arrival he was fed and given a warm dry place to sleep in the workhouse. It seemed being lock-up wasn’t so bad after all. There was one question that remained unanswered about the new guest, a name. Taking the circumstances of the evening into consideration, the only appropriate choice was ER. Page 22

“The poor dog, in life the firmest friend, “The first to welcome, foremost to defend.”

ER with one of his many buddies, Deputy George Towers.

Hamblen County’s former sheriff, Otto Purkey, took ER in, gave him a home and issued him an identification card with the rank of captain. Deputies and court officials took up a collection to pay for dog food and veterinary bills. Almost 10 years has passed since that fateful meeting. Following that time ER has became a fixture at the Hamblen County Justice Center. He continues to reside in the workhouse where he was taken the night of his rescue. Although, some minor adjustments have had to be made with his sleeping arrangements, due to his growth over the years. ER sleeps under a table in the office of the county workhouse that Deputies have had to jack up on blocks as he grew.

ER has been blessed with an abundance of friends who love to supply him with his favorite snacks. These include hot dogs and hamburgers. Getting one of his treats involved a morning ride to Burger King to purchase his breakfast biscuit. Once returning, he would jump out of the car, his biscuit in his mouth, ready to start the day. Much interest was taken in the dog that had no true owners. It was said that he needed an adoptive family to provide him a life where he could be a real pet.That day came and ER was provided that opportunity. However, ER didn’t agree, neither did the benefactor’s house. Soon he was happily returned to the workhouse, where he remains today. Usually a happy dog, there are three things that change his disposition. These things are motorcycles, a trip to the Veterinarian, and the Humane Society’s Animal Shelter truck. Apparently, on one of his days of exploring, he got an unexpected ride to the shelter. Once he found his way back home, it seems he has held onto a grudge.

ER after a cruise with Deputy Bill Bailey, gets one of his many daily treats.

Sheriff Esco Jarnagin feeds ER a treat.

Not a dog of total leisure, ER has created a routine for himself. He comes and goes at his own choosing. He is around the employees and the inmates. He accompanies “Runners” who deliver paperwork to and from the courthouse. He has also been known to visit various places in the nearby area. Apart from seeingeye dogs, ER is the only animal allowed inside the county Justice Center. As an expression of love, ER’s paw prints have been placed at each end of the sidewalk at the front of the Justice Center. If during the current administration ER’s adventures come to an end, he will be provided a service, and be laid to rest near where his paw prints stand as a memorial to the life he led and the lives he touched, says Sheriff Esco Jarnagin and that is one thing he and former Lieutenant now Sheriff candidate Ernie Burzell agree on, that the once cold and lonely stray has truly found a forever home. by: Donita Crews Lawson

“custody battle” nearing an end...

ER is not concerned with the upcoming election, he knows whatever the outcome, he will remain under the excellent care of those he’s known most all his life, his friends at the Hamblen County Sheriff ’s Department.

Noah’s Arc

by: Donita Crews Lawson

focuses on finding homes and providing care for animals in need. Founded in 1991, the organization has achieved the placement of 4500 animals to quality homes. Upon entering the shelter program dogs are given the necessary vaccinations and the customary examinations, including heartworm screenings. In turn cats are also vaccinated, examined and combo tested for FIV / Leukemia. All animals are spayed and neutered. The $50 adoption fee covers the basic medical expenses for the animals. Sheltered dogs must have a fenced yard or a safe area. Most animals are housebroken and know basic commands. On completion of necessary paperwork animals are delivered to their new homes. If for some reason the adoption isn’t successful or there is a need to return the animal they may be returned to Noah’s Arc.

Meet the handsome Flash!! He is a chocolate lab, and he is approximately 6 years old. He loves what labs love: human attention, water, and land to run on. He was rescued from a local abuse case Flash is a very loyal dog that would love a forever home!!

Being a no kill sanctuary that has been in operation for 19 years, some of the population has grown old during their stay. Providing a home for these animals has kept the shelter at full capacity. For that reason no animals can be accepted at this time. Noah’s Arc has no paid employees.The shelter is operated solely on donations and fundraisers. It is staffed completely by volunteers that are critical to the quality of care that the pets receive. There is a desperate need for additional people to continue the efforts in making the shelter’s mission possible. Many animals are looking for a chance to find a loving home. If you are interested in a pet or want to make a difference in the life of a deserving animal, please consider Noah’s Arc, call 586-2993 or 748-2444 or visit their website where you can view photos and bios on all animals available for adoption at: petfinder.com/shelters/noahsarc.html Gracie is very loving girl that is 5 years old. She has been in rescue much of her life. Gracie has watched as her siblings were adopted leaving her in rescue care. Although her days have been endless in rescue - she has a happy personality and loves everyone!

Marty - Young adult - recently rescued. Marty is a beautiful boy, eager to learn and become a loving companion. Friendly to everyone. Just searching for his place in the world.

Snickers is ready to be yours... I am update on all my shots and I am house trained, but no kids please... I want all your attention! :)

If you have space in your heart and home, please adopt a homeless animal. Also, donate what you can and/or volunteer at Noah’s Arc and also the Morristown-Hamblen Humane Society. In a time when the numbers of homeless animals remain staggering, solutions must continuously be sought, please also remember the Morristown-Hamblen Humane Society at 300 Dice Street • 581-1494 • mhhs.net Hello!
