Utah police ask for dog-vest donors

Sgt. Allen Crist and his police dog, Wyatt, make up one of the South Jordan Police Department K-9 teams. Officer Darin Watrous and his dog, Neo, also team up on their police rounds.

The department's K-9 program began in 2000 with a single narcotics-detector dog named Cuffs, who has since retired. Crist, a member of the program since 2003, began training Wyatt when the bloodhound was 10 weeks old. The dog, which was donated to the department by Bitterroots Bloodhounds in Bluffdale, is now 3 years old and is a single-purpose tracking dog.
