The Marseilles City Council on Wednesday was introduced to a new member of the police department. K9 Tucker just completed his training as a drug enforcement dog.
Earlier this year, the council heard from Marseilles Mayor Jim Hollenbeck, who said the city is paying $8,000 for the golden labrador and $5,000 to outfit a police cruiser for Tucker. Marseilles police officer Jim Buckingham is working with Tucker. Meanwhile, during the meeting on Wednesday, Police Chief Brian Faber promoted Officer Jake Callahan to Sergeant.
