ST. CHARLES – The St. Charles Police Department is participating in a grant competition to restart its K-9 unit.
The department has not had a K-9 unit since its previous police dog, Aries, died in June 2017 at age 10. Aries had served the police department for eight years, assisting with duties such as narcotics detection, tracking, building searches, and apprehensions. Aries also assisted the Kane County SWAT team with operations and was certified by the Illinois State Police.
