Seth Moorman, a carbondale K-9 patrol officer, 27, of Carterville stands on the grass field behind the Carbondale police station with his canine, Pasja, as he talks about the training he took to be a K-9 officer, Friday, Oct. 12, 2018. Moorman said that he spent his first six weeks with Pasja training in Indianapolis, coming back to Carbondale in August 2017. “If an officer does a traffic stop and wants to walk the dog around the car and the dog can sniff for illegal narcotics, she can do that. If there is also any type of crime like a robbery or a burglary or something like that that’s just happened recently, depending on the information we have, we might be able to deploy her and track a suspect,” Moorman said. “We can also use her to clear buildings.” (Allie Tiller | @allietiller_de)

“There are no good dog parks in Carbondale that are open to the public,” Sawyer said. “Since this used to be a dog park it’s nice. It’s open, fenced in and we keep it clean. It’s great.”  (William Cooley | @Wcooley1980)
