Officer Scelza & K-9 Allergo

On March 24, 2019, the Lebanon Police Department welcomed Officer Logan Scelza, who came to the Department from the Hartford Vermont Police Department, where he served as an Officer for seven years. On March 24, 2021, Officer Scelza was appointed as a K-9 Officer for the K-9 Unit.

In July of 2021, Officer Scelza was partnered with K-9 Allergo, a year and a half old male German Shepherd that was born in Slovakia on October 13, 2019. K-9 Allergo was selected after a long vetting process that involved numerous K-9 candidates.

In July of 2021, Officer Scelza and K-9 Allergo attended K-9 Patrol School. With this training, K-9 Allergo became proficient in building searches, tracking, evidence recovery, apprehensions, obedience, and more. In November of 2021, Officer Scelza and K-9 Allergo attended Drug Detection School, making K-9 Allergo proficient in detecting the odors of heroin, cocaine, crack cocaine, ecstasy, and methamphetamine. 

Officer Scelza and K-9 Allergo are an essential part of the Patrol Bureau’s K-9 Unit. With their teamwork, the two will provide valuable services to the City of Lebanon.
