The Northampton County Sheriff’s Office has a new addition to its canine family.

K 9 Blitz

Blitz, according to Captain Patrick Jacobs, is a full patrol dog and is being handled by Deputy Timothy Worrell.
The dog is trained in bomb detection, tracking and criminal apprehension.
“The addition of K-9 Blitz to the daily patrol is a significant benefit to the efficiency of patrol units in responding to numerous calls,” Jacobs said. “It is a great asset to the sheriff's office and to the citizens of Northampton County.”
The sheriff’s office acquired Blitz at the first of the month. Blitz and Worrell attended training at American K-9 Interdiction in Carrsville, Virginia.
Blitz is the second dog to join the sheriff’s office since Tommy, a Dutch shepherd, and Deputy Christopher Hamm completed training last September.
Discussions are in place to have a total of four dogs, one for each patrol shift, Jacobs said.
