Multiple law enforcement agencies approved for a grant to help train new canine units

HELENA, Mont. – Multiple police and sheriff’s offices in Montana have had grants approved that will help them obtain and train new canine units.

The canine units will help local law enforcement crackdown on illegal drugs being trafficked into Montana according to the Department of Justice.

“Dangerous drugs like methamphetamine and fentanyl are coming in from the southern border and leading to an increase in crime across Montana. This program is part of my commitment to getting additional resources into the hands of local first responders,” Attorney General Knudsen said
