Canine Unit Comes Clean


Channel 19 WOIO Featured Story by Sia Nyorkor

Canine Unit dogs often come in contact with dangerous substances – drugs, chemicals, and other hazardous materials.  The new wash station allows officers to bathe their dogs immediately after duty.  “Having it here has made it a great asset to us so we can keep our dogs healthy and clean,” said Officer Paul Fronckowiak.  The MetroHealth emergency room department – nurses, police, medics, residents – all wanted to show appreciation for the great job the Cleveland Police do in taking care of them.
