Meet Somerville Police Department’s K9 Officer Tim Sullivan & “K9 Lobo”
By William Tauro
Somerville Police Department K9 Officer Tim Sullivan and “Lobo” Somerville’s official Police Department K9 photoed here out on a morning stroll patrolling the streets of Somerville.
Lobo is a 4 1/2 year old black German Shepherd that has been specifically trained for police operations and is very highly intelligent and not to mention very playful.
This past week the duo jumped into action during a foot pursuit from a call of a suspect who was believed to be armed. The officer caught the suspect and K9 Lobo performed a search and found a loaded revolver. Another gun off the street. Great job by all!
Look for Officer Sullivan and Lobo in and around the city on their daily patrols as they meet the citizens of Somerville.
Read about the entire arrest in this week’s print edition on the Somerville News Weekly.
Our hats are off to their true Somerville spirit!
We here at the Somerville News Weekly salute you both for everything that you do to make Somerville a better place.
