2 Wilkinsburg officers seek overtime for K-9 work


PITTSBURGH - Two Wilkinsburg police officers claim they should be paid extra for time spent caring for their K-9 partners.

Wilkinsburg police Officers Doug Yuhouse and Mark Wilson are suing the borough for overtime pay associated with cleaning, grooming and walking the dogs.

The suit filed Thursday seeks overtime pay for time the officers spent caring for the dogs in their homes. The suit says the plaintiffs were not compensated for time spent working off the clock.

Borough officials and the police chief have not commented on the situation.
