Dalton Police Department Welcomes Comfort Poodle

By Brittany PolitoiBerkshires Staff

The Police Department will be seeking community input on a name for the puppy. 

DALTON, Mass. — Town officials met the Police Department's new comfort dog on Monday.

Police Chief Deanna Strout and Officer Tyler Miller attended the Select Board meeting to introduce the 8-week-old poodle, who will unofficially join the force on Wednesday.

"This is our very first time meeting him as well," Strout said to the board with excitement.

The pup will be assigned to work and live with Officer Tyler Miller.

The Select Board approved the addition of a comfort dog unit two weeks ago. These four-legged officers are traditionally intended to provide ease for post-traumatic incidents or during interview processes.
