(Beaver Dam) The Beaver Dam Police Department has a new canine cop on the beat. The German Shepherd Reagan officially joined the K-9 Unit Saturday alongside handler Brad Konkel. Officer Konkel told us on WBEV’s Community Comment that Reagan has been trained in narcotics detection and tracking. The pair marks the second K-9 Unit on the police force which Konkel says is rare for a city of Beaver Dam’s size. Officer Kevin Hall and K-9 Yeti work road patrol during the overnight hours. Konkel and Reagan will be on the second shift which is from 1:45pm to 10pm.
