Former St. Paul Chief Finney to lead audit of city’s K-9 unit

Former St. Paul Police Chief William Finney will lead a six-month audit of the city’s police K-9 unit following an attack on a bystander last week and a number of other high-profile attacks.

Police Chief Todd Axtell and Mayor Melvin Carter announced the plan Friday and said nothing would be off limits in the probe of how police dogs are used.

Finney said Friday that the K-9 attacks have reached a point that could cause public “unrest, especially when you consider what’s going on nationally” with police-community relations.
