Fighting Crime

The Hanover County Sheriff’s Office has an adorable new K9 joining the ranks. A bloodhound named Jud is the newest crime-fighter. Jud was donated by a family who had a 17-year-old son who unexpectedly died, so Jud’s handler named the dog in honor of the boy. Good luck with all of your training, Jud!
