Police Dog Visits Preschoolers

Children at the Lincoln Early Learning Center were entertained with one of the Mundelein Police Department’s newest recruits, 2-year-old Titan, a German Shepherd from Slovakia. The police department wanted a dog to help with arrests and solving village crime. A trained dog such as this has a specialized set of skills including drug detection through sent and tracking abilities for offenders or missing people. Canine officer Steve Kroll is his handler and trains weekly with the animal. Students learned how the pair worked together as a team to help solve crime.
