Rose Mary O’Connor, chairperson for the Mack Park Neighborhood Association, and Captain Brian Gilligan of the Salem Police Department appeared on Leo Jodoin’s SATV program Salem Now! yesterday, September 11th, to talk about the Salem PD’s K-9 Program and the many fundraising activities which are subsidizing its development.
K-9 programs safely and cost-effectively extend and enhance the capabilities of police departments, by utilizing their better eyesight, speed and sense of smell. Police dogs perform some tasks faster and cheaper than human officers, while reducing risk for both officers and the public.
