New K-9 officer ‘Falco’ joins police force in this N. Fulton city

The Sandy Springs Police Department has a new officer, but he’s not one of the typical “boys in blue.”

He’s furry, has four legs and his nose is his best weapon.

Falco, a Belgian Malinois, has just completed his K-9 training and is ready for duty with the Sandy Springs police. He’ll be assisting in sniffing out drugs, criminals and keeping the residents of the city in north Fulton County safe.

The pup hails from Holland, according to Sergeant Sam Worsham, and is about one-and-a-half years old.

Sandy Springs police expect Falco to give them seven to eight years of service before he retires to the life of a pet.
