Vermont will soon have a new hall of fame, and it’s for dogs.
On Friday, 14 police dogs and their handlers will be inducted into the Vermont Police Canine Association Hall of Fame in a ceremony in Pittsford.
Colchester Police Officer David Dewey says the hall is to recognize dogs who’ve caught criminals, aided suicidal persons or helped get drugs off the streets.
The Association is a nonprofit organization founded in 2000 to accept donations for police dogs. The group took nominations from handlers and police chiefs to decide which dogs will be honored.
