Mecosta County Sheriff’s K-9 gets new handler Sgt. Charlie Pippin
BIG RAPIDS — A police department’s K-9 unit can be a great benefit in the work it does, and the Mecosta County Sheriff’s Office recently received a $1,875 grant from the Great Lakes Energy People Fund which was used to purchase equipment for its K-9 officer, Zeke.
The department recently went through a transition of handlers, and Sgt. Charlie Pippin has taken possession of Zeke from his former handler Chad Thompson and has begun training with Zeke to ease both of them into their new working relationship.
