The city of Kechi will be transferring its police drug dog to her former handler. Eva has been in the care of a veterinarian since her handler left the Kechi Police Department.
At a regular city council meeting Thursday night, the council voted 5-0 to transfer Eva to her former handler, who is now an officer in Halstead.
The Kechi Chief of Police told Eyewitness News this is the best move for the dog and his department will be working closely with the Halstead Police Department, which will now be using her services.
"We have visited with that agency and they're willing to work with us as well after she does go with them so this is the best move for the dog and I had faith in the council that they would do the right thing to make sure she found the appropriate home," said Chief Jason Doll.
