Retired Shelton police dog dies
Police dog Jager came to the department in 2008 partially through a donation from People’s United Bank. Jager was paired with Detective Christopher Nugent. Jager assisted several local, state and federal agencies during his career and approximately 75 successful tracks, police said in a release. The police dog apprehended as many as 15 dangerous suspects, they said. Police described Jager as an “effective tool” and an “asset,” working well with Nugent. Nugent and Jager were also active in the community, according to the release. The pair visited area schools and attended community functions and programs. Jager retired in 2014 and continued to live with Nugent.
