Five new dogs sworn into Green Bay Police Department

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - You could say they are force to be reckoned with.

"In the past couple of weeks, these dogs have made some several significant narcotics arrests. Resulting in a seizure of narcotics and money," said Chief Andrew Smith, Green Bay Police Department.

On Wednesday, The Green Bay Police Department added five new, crime-fighting dogs to the force: Roco, Pyro, Puma, Bose and Drago. Chief Smith said these additions would not be possible without the community's help.

"The reason why we are here and the reason why we have these dogs is because of the communities support. The reason why we are able to get that community support is because so many people love K9s and love working dogs and supporting them," said Smith.

This is a new challenge for Drago's handler Jeff Brann.

"It's wonderful. It's a whole new point in my career to be able to do something different," said Brann.

He sees a bright future with Drago.

"It's rewarding to be able to go out and catch the bad guys, just in general. But, to be able to have a partner come out and just enhance that ability is even better," said Brann.

At the press conference, Chief Smith had a bold statement for the criminals around town.

"We have a message for anybody who's is thinking of bringing narcotics to the City of Green Bay, and that is, we double dog care you," said Smith.
