Thanks to the efforts of several organizations, businesses, and community members, the White County Sheriff Department recently received a new K-9 Unit patrol vehicle.
Over the course of the past year, the White County Sheriff Department has received the help of numerous organizations, Friends of White County Animals, businesses, and community members in raising funds to help purchase a new K-9 unit patrol vehicle. Thanks to the generosity of many, the sheriff department was able to recently take ownership of a new patrol vehicle.
This vehicle has been customized and equipped with several features to support the operation of a K-9 unit. It is equipped with a kennel that will be used to safely transport White County’s newest trained law enforcement K-9, Ponch.
Additionally, the new White County Sheriff Department K-9 Unit patrol vehicle is equipped with a rumbler siren system. The rumbler siren is a pulsating, low-frequency tone that operates at 108-360 hertz, which operates in tandem with the standard high-frequency siren tones.
This rumbler siren is capable of producing sound that penetrates hard surfaces like glass and doors more efficiently than the standard high-frequency siren tones to help get the attention of drivers in higher noise environments. The rumbler low thumping sound produces vibrations that can be felt by those near the siren.
White County Sheriff Department, Sheriff Oddie Shoupe and Deputy William Whitson would like to thank all of those who have supported and contributed toward the purchase of the new K-9 unit patrol vehicle.
