Five new K-9 police officers are ready to hit the streets and take a bite out of crime.

The three dogs and their handlers for the Mansfield Police Department, and two for the Richland County Sheriff's Office graduated from their training Wednesday, at the K-9 Training Grounds on Lexington- Ontario Road.

Sheriff's Captain Jim Sweat Jr. says a four-legged partner is in many ways an officer's most valuable asset. And Sweat says officers form a strong bond with their K-9 partners, not only because they spend all day together at work, but also at home during off-time.

The graduates are Mansfield Police Officers Steve Hornback and Xaro, Sara Mosier-Napier and Sam, and Ryan Garner and Elliot; along with Sheriff's Deputies Jeff Myers and Rahko, and Jeff Frazier and Buck.
