Shawnee von Bachbett is pictured here with her handler and the judge at her swearing in ceremony last night. Judge John Damon, (who also swore in Shawnee's Mom Heline several years ago), gave Shawnee the oath during the monthly meeting of the Trempealeau County Board. Shawnee and handler Deputy Travis McDonah then went out and promptly got their first three drug arrests! Good job!
Not to be outdone, brother Sabiye, one of LaCrosse County Sheriff's Department's K9 Boxers, did a successful criminal suspect track last night as well. Also new to the job, this was Sabiye's first track. Another good job- congratulations Deputy Stoughtenger!
