Shelbyville Eyeing New K-9 Dog For First Time Ever

Shelbyville hoping for its own K-9 unit. 


Police Chief Chad Brachbill details the process of obtaining one. 

Patrolman and K-9 handler Joe Houch details the adjustments the department would need to make if they acquired a K-9 unit. 

Chief Brachbill says the departure of the Shelby County Sheriff K-9 Kilo in November 2021 solidified the need for Shelbyville to have its own K-9. 

Houck has spent a lot of time around dogs and he is excited to be able to train the new K-9 – hopefully by the end of the summer. 

Cheif Brachbill hopes to obtain the K-9 by the end of August. 


Houck and Chief Brachbill appeared as guests on the WTIM Morning Show.
