Sumter Today: We learn how the sheriff’s office trains its award-winning K9


Senior Deputy Peyton Way is a K9 handler at the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office, and she let us sit in on a training session she conducted with her partner, K9 Tank. Tank is a 7-year-old German Shepherd and recently was awarded the 2019 Zero to Hero Award at the South Carolina K9 Workshop, which is a recognition for all-around trained K9s.
