The Owensboro Police Department announces its new K9 unit.

Vendo is a 21-month-old German Shepherd. OPD purchased him back in November for $17,988. A Kentucky Office of Homeland Security grant covered the expense.

This is the department's third K9 unit. Vendo's assigned handler is Officer Steve Morgan, a 13 year veteran with OPD.
