Media Release: MPD K-9s Receive Protective Eyewear Donation
January 16, 2019
Recently, the Morristown Police Department (MPD) K-9 unit received a donation of protective eyewear. Kim Dunn and Lisa Hudgens with Smoky Mountain K-9 Sports donated six pairs of Rex Specs to MPD K-9s.
The goggles are designed to help protect the K-9s’ eyes. These will be utilized during training and in any hazardous working conditions. Currently, the MPD has six K-9s. Dunn and Hudgens’ donation gives each K-9 a pair of goggles for eye protection.
The MPD and K-9s are grateful for the compassion and generosity that the ladies at Smoky Mountain K-9 Sports have shown the Morristown Police Department.
MPD K-9 Officers and their partners are Captain Dan Cliff with partner Zlatan, Sergeant Brad Rice with partner Rossi, Officer Lucas Watson with partner Baxl, Officer Paul Pressley with partners Dano and Ranger, and Officer Blake McCarter with partner Riot. All MPD K-9s are dual purpose. They are trained for apprehension and either explosive ordnance or narcotics detection.
