k9 team - Deputy Thomas & art
Art is a three year old, purebred German Shepherd, from Czech Republic. Art joined our office in November 2016. Art's specialized training includes narcotics detection, tracking, and searches. Deputy Thomas and Art are members of a local K9 group that continually train and hone the skills of the K9 partners so they are better able to assist the citizens, and other agencies within, and around, Page County. Art was purchased with funds made available to the Page County Sheriff's Office through donations by citizens of the County and the State and Federal Asset Forfeiture system, which allows money used in illegal narcotics criminal activities to be forfeited to law enforcement agencies for the use toward establishing and maintaining anti-drug operations. This is one of the measures taken by Sheriff Cubbage to show his commitment to significantly reducing the effect of illegal narcotics activity in Page County.
Sheriff Cubbage, Deputy Thomas, and Art want to thank the following businesses, organizations, and individuals who have supported the Page County Sheriff's Office K9 Program:
* Dr. Johnny Clark * Barbara L. Guffey * Brent Bozell, III
* VA Canine Association * Tina Runyon * Tractor Supply
* Lowes - Harrisonburg
* Page County SPCA
