Roseville Police Officer John Jorgensen and his K-9 partner, Major, watch as Gov. Mark Dayton signs into law March 22 a bill that will increase the penalty for injuring public safety dogs and impose mandatory restitution on offenders who harm these animals. Major, who was stabbed four times in the back and was paralyzed while on police duty, now uses a special wheeled harness to support his rear legs to get around. Sponsors and supporters of the new law standing behind Dayton are, from left, Sen. John Harrington, Sen. Dan Hall, Public Safety Commissioner Ramona Dohman, Rep. Tony Cornish and Sen. John Marty.
