The Nevada City Council held a ceremony to swear in the city’s new K-9 officer Rudiger, amongst a room full of local residents and police officers Wednesday night.

“It’s been a long time coming,” Police Chief Tim Foley said. “Not one dime of city funds went to develop this initiative, (and) that goes from the training, to the purchasing of Rudiger, and the car, which is state of the art… I want to, on behalf of the police department, thank everyone who helped with the funding of this.”

The one and a half year old black Sable German Sheperd was also presented a collar badge and a gift from the city— a T-bone steak.



Rudiger and his human partner Officer Michael Scott Goin officially began duty together on Wednesday.
