OUACHITA PARISH SHERIFF’S OFFICE ENHANCES K-9 TRAINING

Popeye, a black Labrador Retriever, is a 6 year veteran of the Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s K-9 corps. He is assigned to S.C.A.T.  for use in narcotic searches.  Recently, Popeye and his handler, S. P. Dy. Wayne Singley, received additional specialized training.  This K-9 team is now trained and certified to search for missing children and elderly persons, as well as items used in a crime.  Training in these areas is a valuable tool for deputies to have available for these type searches.

Popeye will continue his role assigned to S.C.A.T., but is also available for these type searches when required.
