Cuba Police Department ends K-9 services

After four highly successful years, the Cuba Police Department no longer offers K-9 services. Police Chief Dustin Burch said a "labor/management" issue ended the program. The Town Board voted last month to terminate the services. Officer Jim Galatio was the handler for K-9 Inga. According to Chief Burch, "Officer Galatio is an exceptional officer with many years of great service to the town." He added there were no "bad feelings," saying it was simply a contractual matter in which terms could not be reached. Chief Burch said Galatio and Inga "did a wonderful job."
