Return K-9 Vinnie to his Handler, Sgt. J.T. Griner sign now

In April 2004 Police Officer James Griner became a K-9 Officer and was assigned his K-9, Vinnie (age 2). Vinnie moved into Officer Griners home and lived among him and his family through the duration of his duty. Shortly thereafter Officer Griner was promoted to a supervisory position. The rules stated that a supervisor was not allowed to have a specialty, yet they promised him that he would continue to be Vinnies handler regardless of the rules. Over the past 5+ years James and Vinnie have been inseparable and always served their duty with honor, respect and integrity. Last week, Sgt Griner was alerted to the fact that Vinnie would be stripped from him and kenneled until reassignment with another officer who has yet to be hired/named/trained. Therefore Vinnie will be sitting in a kennel for an unknown amount of time with no interaction with his former handler, Sgt Griner.


Please sign this petition that will be forwarded to Chief Lyons of the Garden City Police Department, as well as the Garden City, City Council. Help me convince Chief Lyons that not only is this unfair treatment to Vinnie but also to Sgt. Griner. Lets get Vinnie back with his handler, Sgt. James T. Griner.

Lets make a difference and get these partners back together!

    Rather than a kennel they both need the love they've had for so long.

    Vinnie should stay with Jim at least until someone is properly trained to care for him...he is a valued memeber of the police force..you wouldn't put a person in a kennel!

    First of all everyone is stating how inhumane keeping the dog in a kennel is, well the dog sitting in a patrol car for a 12 hour shift without being worked is the same. second of all everybody talks about how this is his dog.. last time i checked he didnt
