Ripley Police Dept. receives equipment for K9 unit

new-k-9-ripleyBy Martha Jacob –

Earlier this year, Ripley hired a new K-9 officer to it’s police department, thanks to the generosity of Ripley Police officer Corey S. Herren.
Officer Herren purchased and trained the dog, “Bragi” himself and donated the dog’s services to the Ripley Police Department.
“We are very happy to report that Spikes K9 Fund in Ohio recently donated a special alarm that we will be using in our K9 cruiser,” Officer Herren said.
“This unit is called K9 Heat Alarm Pro Kit, and it is designed to keep Bragi safe at all times when he’s in the cruiser with me.”
The Spikes K9 Fund works with and for K9 officers across the country.
The heat alarm pro kit is a total temperature monitoring system for dogs and the vehicles they are transported in. The system monitors vital components including temperature sensors, vehicle battery voltage and engine stall.
“We were excited to get this new system donated to us,” Officer Herren said. “All the information on what’s going on inside my vehicle is shown on a 32-character display, which can be monitored at
all times.”
He continued, “When something isn’t quite right, and a certain condition is detected, the Alarm Kit will activate an immediate S.O.S. which triggers the horn to honk, the signals will come on and even the siren and the light bar will activate. This notification could save Bragi’s life.”
Another thing that happens when an S.O.S. is sent out is that the windows will automatically drop down for the dog on board.
The new equipment comes with a software based feature which allows for future upgrades.
“We all feel a little better with this new unit,” Officer Herren said. “Bragi is not only important to the department, he’s pretty important to me too.”
