SNYDER COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU)- Effective today, the Snyder County Sheriff’s Office’s first K-9 unit has been placed in service.
The newest deputy is Leo the German Shepard! Leo and his handler, Chief Deputy Lucas Bingman, have received intensive training in narcotics detection and human tracking.
Leo will also make appearances at local schools, senior centers, and other community events that the Snyder County Sheriff’s Office participated in to create awareness and provide education on drug prevention.
