Jet is our retired K9. She is a black German Shepherd and lives with her handler in the State St./Romig Rd. area.

Please share this post with anyone who may live, work, or travel in the State St./Romig Rd. area. If seen or located please do not attempt to capture, contact our dispatch at 330.658.2771, and ask to be connected to the officer on duty. A reward is being offered.
