MIDDLESEX — Middlesex Township Police Department will soon have a new working dog on the job.

Supervisors approved K-9 officer Mark Heider to reserve a spot for a new K-9 unit police dog at a meeting on Wednesday night.

The township’s previous K-9, Mibo, who had been with the department since 2015, died Aug. 14 of a “medical emergency,” according to the department.

The board did not make a decision on what type of dog to bring in, and plans to discuss further on whether the township would be better served by a bomb-detection dog or a narcotics dog.
