LAS VEGAS (AP) - The Nevada Highway Patrol is working to preserve its K-9 program after six of the eight troopers working with the dogs asked to be reassigned.

Department of Public Safety Director Chris Perry told The Associated Press Thursday that he has met with the troopers and hopes to persuade them to stay on.

The troopers submitted individual requests to be reassigned on Monday. The state paid for them to travel to Carson City Tuesday for a meeting to address their concerns.

Perry says the troopers had heard a rumor that the dogs were going to be retrained and were upset. Perry says the dogs will not be retrained.

He says there are no changes being made to the program.

Perry was promoted to director in December by newly-elected Gov.
Brian Sandoval.
