WOODBINE, GA (WTOC) -

The Camden County Sheriff's Office Drug Task Force acquires new patrol dog after one dog had to retire due to ongoing health issues.

Sgt. Kevin Barber returned from Ohio earlier in Sept. with Dasko, a Belgian Malinois. 

Due to tremendous generosity of the Board of County Commissioners and the efforts of County Administrator Steve Howard the CCSO was able to acquire Dasko from a highly rated and well respected trainer in Ohio. Dasko takes over the working duties of veteran K-9 Reno with Sgt. Barber. 

Sheriff Proctor said working with Steve Howard and the Board of County Commissioners made the purchase of Dasko possible.

"I asked for their help with this knowing that Reno would have to retire. Without hesitation Mr. Howard and the Board stepped up and helped us. I truly appreciate their cooperation and assistance. Working together we can all better serve the citizens of Camden County."
