Officer Shawn Gutshall & K-9 Lock

Officer Shawn Gutshall of the Newville Police Department poses with the department’s first K-9, Lock, in front of the Veterans’ Memorial near the Fountain last week.

Officer Shawn Gutshall of the Newville Police Department has chosen a promising four-legged partner in the field, thanks to support from the borough and community.

Lock, a pure black Shepherd from Slovakia, arrived at Castle’s K-9 in Mechanicsburg from Europe earlier this summer, after a few delays due to the pandemic. He is the first K-9 in the department’s history.
