New Sheriff’s K-9 Asset Donated By Rineco Chemical Industries – SALINE COUNTY


2018 IRS Refund Schedule

Public Release – SALINE COUNTY SHERIFF’s DEPARTMENT (Sheriff Rodney Wright)

GRACIOUS DONATION MADE TO THE SCSO

During the spring of 2018, representatives from Rineco Chemical Industries approached the Saline County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) and inquired how they could make a donation.

Within a few weeks, representatives from Rineco presented a check to Sheriff Rodney Wright for the purchase and training of a new K-9 dog.

In May, K-9 Handler Corporal Logan Knight and his new partner, “RINECO”, graduated from Little Rock K-9 Academy. “RINECO” has been trained and is certified in narcotic detection, tracking, building searches and bite-work apprehension.

Since graduation, employees at the Rineco facility in Haskell have been raising money through a raffle. Raffle tickets were sold at one dollar each and the winner was given authority to pour a 5 gallon bucket of ice water on the head of a supervisor of their choosing!

The employees raised $1,000 and this morning, Rineco President Ernie Walker and Vice President of Operations Ryan Dossey presented Sheriff Wright with a check in that amount.

The money will be specifically used to buy a light-weight level III protective vest which “RINECO” can wear throughout his tour of duty. The remainder of the money will be used to purchase K-9 training aids.

Below are a few photographs of the event which took place this morning on the grounds of Rineco Chemical Industries in Haskell.

The Saline County Sheriff’s new K-9, “Rineco” is trained for narcotics detection and patrol work.
