BDPD K-9 Team Helps Locate Woman In Distress

(Beaver Dam) The Beaver Dam Police Department is recognizing one of their K-9 teams for finding a woman who was in potential danger. At around 4pm last Friday, the police department was notified of a female who left their residence and was threatening harm upon herself.

Officers were able to locate the general area where she possibly was on the information they received. Police searched the diverse terrain along the city limits without success for about a half hour. A short time later, Officer Brad Konkel and his K-9 partner Charlie were called to assist. After a search covering roughly 350 yards of thick woods, a cornfield and a creek, Charlie located the woman unharmed in less than 10 minutes.

Beaver Dam Police Chief John Kreuziger says Officer Konkel and Charlie saved the woman from potential danger as well as greatly limit the amount of manpower that would have been needed for a search of that area. He says the police department is very fortunate to have both Charlie and Yeti who continually show that hard working K-9’s are a great asset to both the community and their agency.
