FRANKLIN, Tenn. (WMOT)  -- The Franklin Police Department welcomed its newest graduating officers into the force on Friday. The department’s newest recruits are living proof that bravery can also walk on four legs.

Service, courage, and loyalty. Those are just a few of the words used to describe the Franklin police department's newest K9 officers, Duke and Jenks.  

Many officers and their families attended the graduation in recognition of the 30 weeks of hard training the German Shepherds underwent.

MURFREESBORO, Tenn (WMOT)  --  Franklin Mayor Ken Moore says city and county governments across the state are becoming increasingly concerned about a series of bills under consideration by the Tennessee General Assembly.

The Franklin Board of Alderman recently passed a resolution opposing 14 measures currently working their way through the state legislature. Moore says the bills would strip local governments of the ability to regulate everything from land use to fireworks sales.
