FRAMINGHAM – The Middlesex Sheriff’s Office has officially welcomed the newest member of its K-9 Unit to the department.
K-9 Dali, a 2-year-old Belgian Malinois from Georgia, began work at the end of November.
Dali, who is partnered with Lieutenant Mike Kelley, was obtained through a grant from Dogs for Law Enforcement.
Dali is a dual purpose K-9, having completed courses with the MBTA Transit Police K-9 Training Unit for patrol and explosives detection.
Dali joins Pebbles and Elmo as members of the MSO’s K-9 Unit.
In addition to providing security at the Middlesex Jail & House of Correction, members of the unit provide direct support to local law enforcement, as well as through the Northeastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council (NEMLEC).
