The Lancaster Police Department is asking the city for money to buy another drug dog.
Police Chief Hugh White asked City Council on Tuesday to provide the needed funding to replace Bruno, the drug dog that’s been with the police department for 10 years.
White said it will cost between $9,000 and $12,000 to buy a new, well-trained dog.
“Obviously, we purchased a top-quality dog in 1999,” he said. “It’s my opinion we need to begin searching for a replacement for Bruno.”
