Children at the event – along with the young-at-heart – loved the canine unit.

Lt. Mickey Yentes said, “The dedication, the hard work that they put into it, and being able to give those dogs those commands, and have them go out and apprehend violent felony criminals … it’s just a way to show the public that what they do is really a true dedication to the citizens of Nashville.”

This was the second year police and Crime Stoppers held an open house for the Nashville community.
