BARNESVILLE, Ohio — The Barnesville Police Department has received a $50,000 grant to replace the K-9 unit.
While on the clock, Officer Andrew Stewart and 5-year-old K-9 Dixie use a specialized K-9 vehicle that Chief Rocky Sirianni says needs to be replaced.
A dispatcher helped with the application for a United States Department of Agriculture grant. With it, the department will be getting a brand-new, fully-fitted K-9 vehicle.
