The Shelbyville Police Department was able to reinstate their Canine Unit in 2019 after a generous donation from Jeptha Creed Distillery. The family owned and operated distillery wished to make a donation locally that would impact the entire community. The Canine (JC) was trained in Michigan, but was born in Kentucky. JC is a dual purpose Narcotics and Tracking dog. Her training along with her handler, Officer Brian Beeler, kept them away from our community for an extended period of time, but since coming back have made a positive impact.
