York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office has New Recruit
12-week old bloodhound Sarge is the latest addition to the YPSO K-9 Unit. Deputy Nick Levindoski, York-Poquoson Sheriff's Office Deputy of the Year for 2022, was chosen to be Sarge’s partner. K-9 Sarge, donated by Mary’s Cedar Ridge Bloodhounds in Kentucky will be certified by August/September of 2023 and will be used for tracking missing adults & children, Alzheimer/Dementia patients, and on occasion suspects of crimes in conjunction with our other K-9’s. Bloodhounds have the ability to single out human scent specific to a person and track that person based on that scent. Sarge will also be the celebrity at many community events and a frequent visitor to our schools. He joins a very skilled and successful K-9 unit that has already, this month, assisted in three different illegal firearms or drug related arrests.
