Clarksville, TN – On May 1st, 2012, Clarksville Police Department’s Police Service Dogs were presented with their own personalized badges. The idea was the brain-child of Capt Craig Gipson, Special Operations Commander.
When Officer Joey Scruggs’, retired Police Service Dog, “Q” passed away, Captain Gipson came up with the idea of a departmental badge for the department’s Police Service Dogs since they are, essentially, the K-9 handlers law enforcement partner.Each badge has the Police Service Dog’s name and will stay with them even if they change handlers. The four current Clarksville Police Service Dogs, Karma, Main, Aris, and Solo received their badges Tuesday.
The badges were presented to the K-9 Handlers for their Police Service Dogs by Captain Craig Gipson. Capt Gipson also presented Officer Joey Scruggs a badge for his retired Police Service Dog “Q” who passed away.
The presentation took place at 1584 Vista Lane.
