The newest member of Connecticut State Police Troop A Southbury is named Waffle. The Narcotics K9 Trainee is on the force with the help of fundraising by Henry Abbott Technical High School Students and faculty. Their T-shirt program helped with the hiring of Waffle.
She is currently in her five week initial imprint training and will follow that up with a six week training with her handler.
Troop A says Waffle had so much fun with the student body during her introduction ceremonies and was said to be the star of the show. But State Police say the Abbott Tech students were the stars, setting a goal, meeting the challenge and in the long run their efforts may save a life.
