It was in the late 1960s that Auburn Police Chief Thomas Gillman wanted to make his community a safer place.
Gillman, 29, who had served the community for three years, adopted a German Shepherd to help track down burglary suspects. He sought professional training for his dog, Rex, from Private Raymond Brotebeck, a Michigan State Police dog handler at the Bay City Station.
