News 18 caught up with Deputy Jonathan Ringo his K 9 Britt this afternoon.

They are currently on week four of five for training.

They were working on apprehending a suspect.

Training will then continue next week at Six Flags Great America.

"We'll have buildings galore, we'll have rides we can go out in the woods. We'll have the waterpark to be able to mess with so it's a chance to give, our last week I can test them in certain skills and see where they're at, see if the dogs are prepared and ready to go for the road," said Deputy Lenny Popp.

The new dogs will be used in a variety of ways - including narcotics detection, tracking, and apprehension.
