On Thursday, Dec. 8th, 2022 there was a heavy law enforcement presence at the Indianola Walmart store, as the Indianola Police Department and their families took several kids on a holiday shopping spree for Christmas. As part of our annual "Elves in Blue" IPDCOP program organized by our SRO Officer Jay Hackett and staff and supported by IPDCOP, Walmart, Weinman Insurance, City State Bank, as well as many others in our community. Participants of the event were able to shop with an Officer and then assist in having all the gifts for themselves and families wrapped by our staff and their families. We appreciate Walmart and their staff so much, for their yearly donation and wonderful assistance in helping this be a yearly success. We have enjoyed this event for many years and look forward to many more events throughout the new year.

The full story on Altoona’s K9 Zeke.

We also want to thank those who had kind words and well wishes, and who kept an eye out for Zeke until he was reunited with his handler 🐾

Yoda be kidding me... this is not the way!
🐾
Escaped he did. Worried we were.
🐾
POLICE K9 REUNITED WITH HANDLER
💙
For more than five hours, K9 Zeke was lost in Warren County, Iowa. He was finally reunited with his “Dad,” Officer Cody Poffenberger.
👮‍♂️🐾
K9 Zeke, a two-year-old Belgian Malinois, was being boarded while his Handler was on vacation. Zeke was cared for at the Doggy Hotel by people who have experience with police dogs. On the last day of Zeke’s retreat, he decided to take matters into his own paws and go on a walkabout.
🗺
On November 13th at about 5:00 PM, K9 Zeke was lost. K9 Zeke has never wandered away from his Handler, because they are a team. Where one goes, the other goes. Officer Poffenberger said his heart dropped, and he thought the worst. Telling his children was hard, and the oldest boy jumped in the car with his Dad and together they began searching for Zeke.
🔊 🚔
After an extensive search and several leads, one of which a witness reported Zeke playing with their pet dogs, the search was called until daylight.
👀
About 15 minutes after people reluctantly went home without Zeke, Chris Hixon of rural Indianola, called dispatch and reported Zeke was on his property. Chris knew that Dustin Konrad, Hartford Firefighter, was looking for the lost police dog. After Chris notified police, he called Dustin and told him K9 Zeke was by his house. A few moments later, Dustin saw Zeke and called for him, “Zeke! Here!” Zeke’s walkabout had come to an end, and soon after he was reunited with Officer Poffenberger.
🐾
Not only is Zeke a member of APD’s family, but also part of the Poffenberger household. After being grounded for the night, K9 Zeke is back to work on patrol.
🐾
Altoona Police K9 Zeke is a certified Dual Purpose Police Dog through the United States Police Canine Association (USPCA).
🐾
‼️Thank you to the following agencies for assisting in the reunion: Indianola Police Department, Warren County Sheriff’s Office, Warren County Emergency Management Agency, Hartford Fire Department, Des Moines Police Department, Altoona Fire Department, and Northern Warren Fire Department.
