Macedonia Police Department has a new four-legged officer ready to be put to work this summer.
During the May 11 City Council meeting, Mayor Joe Migliorini swore in, Apollo, 18 months, to the department. Apollo will have the same handler as the department's current K-9, Haro - Ptl. Sean Hathaway. Hathaway said he adopted Apollo from the same breeder as Haro and found that Apollo needed a purpose. He said he took him to the training facility as Haro, who evaluated him and said he would be a great fit for the department. Apollo is in training and is expected to be put to work this summer. He will have cross training in tracking and suspect apprehension like Haro however instead of being a drug sniffing K-9, he will be a bomb sniffing dog.
