Union County K-9 Units Visits Clark Preschool


CLARK, NJ – Clark Preschoolers had a visit from the Union County Sheriff’s Office and a special furry officer on April 20.  Sheriff’s Detective Gialanella, Sheriff’s Officer Current, and their K-9s visited the preschool in honor of Community Helper Month.

Current spoke about her duty on the K-9 Search and Rescue unit with her dog.  She also spoke about her role as a canine officer and handler.

Current explained that the dogs are trained and bred for their intelligence and strong sense of smell by their handlers.  Handlers like Current work with their dogs during the day and, when off-duty, the canine officers and dogs go home together to their family.
