  • 6. Great Dog and Man

    by: klfowler

    Deputy Rideout and his program are an invaluable or priceless service in our area. He was one of the 1st officers to utilize K-9 partners in Muskegon County. His first K9 partner died from a perforated intestine. He has a new partner now, Barrett - very talented and beautiful - busy learning his duties! When the two of them aren't on offical duty, they are at schools showing their stuff to the youth.\r\n

    Pros

    do good things

    Cons

    none

  • 7. Deputy Kane is Deputy Rideouts best friend!

    by: jodiclock

    Deputy Rideout is an amazing individual. He was one of the 1st officers to utalize K-9 partners in Muskegon County. His previous K9 partner was killed in the line of duty. Since then he has gained a new partner who has big paws to fill~! His new partner is equally as talented and certainly knows his stuff! He has already assisted with several area drug deals. When the two of them aren't on offical policy duty, they are educating the school systems.\r\n\r\nBoth Deputy Rideout and his program are an invaluable or priceless service in our area. I for one am proud of their accomplishments and feel safer knowing they are on the watch!

    Pros

    Police trainned dog can find things that a person can't

    Cons

    Must have a dedicated handler who honors and respects the dogs talents
