Clarkston Police Swear in Officer Donut as the City’s First Community Relations Dog.
CLARKSTON, GA. — The City of Clarkston Police Department was proud to introduce their newly sworn-in K9 officer during the National Night Out event at Milam Park. Sgt. Dustin Bulcher told the Tucker Observer the backstory on how this cute puppy became the community mascot. “I was flagged down one day toward the beginning of the month by a resident who said someone had dropped a box of puppies off at the Chevron gas station on Church Street.” Bulcher and another officer found three puppies but were only able to catch two of them. The officers brought the pups to the police department in hopes of finding them a home. One officer was able to take one of them home. After the office battled out who got to take home puppy number two, the department came up with the idea to keep her as their mascot. The department asked for citizen input to help them choose her new name. The options were either Donut or Clarke. They chose Donut as the perfect fit for her. Officer Donut will now be a part of the department’s community relations division and attend all community events.
