DOGGIE JAIL BREAK ALERT!

*** UPDATE- PICKED UP

Dad saved me from having to do hard time! ****

****************************************************************

"I'm in the doghouse, literally!"

The Geneseo Police Department has found a sweet pup who accidentally ended up in our jail! He's a good one, just took a wrong turn at the hydrant. This pup is wagging his tail for someone to break them out and take them home!

Break Out:
Do you recognize this lovable jailbird or know their family? The prisoner patiently awaits someone to return him to his comfy bed and favorite toys! If you're the owner, please contact us to arrange his release.

Jailhouse Paws:
We'll keep this adorable inmate safe and sound until his family comes to pick him up.

Detective Shoemaker's exceptional dedication to serving our community shines brightly, especially in her remarkable work with Mental Health and Crisis calls.

The award will be presented at the upcoming 2024 Women In Criminal Justice Conference in April, where Detective Shoemaker's outstanding contributions will be celebrated.
