Police chief John Moore welcomed everyone to the formal introduction of Holliston's K9, Cesh. He explained that Cesh was unavailable to meet everyone as he just completed an extensive search for one of two suspects in the breakin on Gorwin Drive. Ashland's K9 went after the other suspect.

Just back from persuing suspects in the Gorwin Drive area, left to right above, Officers  Chris Alberini of Ashland, Chris Langmeyer of Framingham, and Holliston's Matt Stone were on hand to speak about the program and answer questions.

Middlesex County Sheriff Peter Koutoujian, above, had high praises for the K9 program and dedication of everyone involved.

Kathy Hines, above, is with Mass Vesta Dog, an advocacy organization which contributed $5,000.00 to Holliston's K9 program.

Ken Ballinger, above left, is the Deputy Superintendant of Plymouth County Sheriff's Office. He spoke of the support systems required to keep the dogs healthy and alert. He said most dogs will stay on the job for 8 or 9 years and then retire. Some remain on the job for up to 12 years.

Holliston's youngest K9 advocate, Henry Tate was on hand with his dad, Jeff. Henry has raised funds to support the program.

Also in attendance was Lisa Zais, representing the Friends of Holliston K9, a non-profit organization that helps raise awarness and funds for the program. They are planning another Dog Walk for May 19, 2013, that will include demonstrations by the dogs from Ashland and Framingham as well as Holliston.
