(Beaver Dam) The Beaver Dam Police Department has a new member on the force. Seventeen-month-old German Shepherd Charlie joined the K-9 Unit one month ago alongside his handler, Brad Konkel (pictured left). The new K-9 replaces Reagan, who hit the beat in September but was just not the right fit. Konkel and Charlie are on the second shift which is from 1:45pm to 9:45pm. The dog is trained in narcotics detection, article detection and tracking. In his first month, Charlie had six confirmed hits. Officer Kevin Hall and K-9 Yeti work road patrol during the overnight hours.
