In Memory of Shawnee

K-9 Shawnee specialized in narcotic detection and tracking humans. K-9 Shawnee contributed to 12 felony and 59 misdemeanor drug related arrests in the 15 months she was an active K-9 Officer with our office. She was recognized by the United States Police Canine Associate with a plaque for her services in the K-9 field. K-9 Shawnee is gone, but not forgotten for her service in Trempealeau County.
