Campbellsville Police Department has stopped its K-9 patrol program, at least for now.
"We are in need of patrol officers due to scheduling, training, vacations, etc.," according to Campbellsville Police Chief Dennis Benningfield.
"Our calls for K-9 are so little that we need to concentrate more on community policing. Our officers do a great job in drug detection and investigations that we just do not need a K-9. This will also reduce our expenses for the Department."
The department had one K-9 unit.
