Chief Lang schedules dog training for officers

In the wake of last week's dog shooting Sandusky police Chief Jim Lang has set up officer training sessions with Erie County dog warden Barb Knapp.

"I'm not saying we did anything wrong," Lang said. "If we can learn anything by this then we will. We're always trying to be better."

Through the training he hoped to open Sandusky police officers to different strategies of dealing with dogs and give officers a better understanding of canine behavior.

After getting a slew of nasty emails Tuesday when the cruiser cam video of the incident was released, Lang said a flood of supportive emails came Thursday.

"They're mostly saying 'you shouldn't have to deal with this kind of abuse,'" Lang said.
