Holliston's police department has been without a K-9 unit since K-9 handler Matt Stone became the town's police chief earlier this year in April. That K-9, Cesh, now retired, lives with Stone's family in Walpole. Chief Stone told the HollistonReporter.com on Sunday morning that he plans to have the K-9 program up and running along with a new handler and dog by this spring. Stone said several officers indicated interest in the job.

Helping to make the return of the K-9 program a reality Sunday morning were representatives of MA Vest A Dog. L to R - Diane Whittaker, President, Joshua Medeiros, Vice President, Tom Long, Freetown Police Department and K-9 Coda, Chief Stone and Ted Yerardi of Yerardi Transport who made a large donation to MA Vest A Dog. Chief Stone accepted a check from MA Vest A Dog in the amount of $7,500.

In other police news, Chief Stone said the town has hired five new officers. Felicia Filadelfo is already on duty while others will attend police academy and not be on duty for another six months. They include Ethan Coakley, John Loftus, David Charette and Charles Grace.
