I would like to introduce our newest members of the Whiteside County Sheriff's Office , 1 1/2 year old Germann Shepherd Amor, along with 7 year Deputy Derek Hamstra. Amor is a German shepherd from Poland. Deputy Hamstra and Amor left Sunday March 1, 2020 for a 6 week K-9 program in Michigan.
The duo will return in mid- April and hit the roads of Whiteside County running. As right now there are only a couple of canines in the county and Amor will be a great public relations tools as well as a great tool for law enforcement. Whether Amor is tracking down a fugitive or finding a lost child, Amor will be a great addition to the Sheriff's Office. As Sheriff, my office will continue to use all tools to aide in making Whiteside County a safe place to live.
