2-Year old Dutch Shepherd, K9 Kleo, is 5/5 detecting drugs in Jonesboro, GA having only started on the force early this year. Story Link
www.news-daily.com wrote:“It’s good,” [Officer Marcus] Gerald said of their days spent together. “She’s crazy, but she gives me somebody to talk to.”
Holland, Germany born, K9 Barry, gets a protective vest in West Lafayette, IN. Barry is 89 pounds. :o Story Link
www.purdueexponent.org/ wrote:The vest was supplied to the WLPD through the Spike’s K-9 Fund foundation, an organization whose mission is to outfit as many police K-9s as possible and that has already gifted vests to over 500 police K-9s across the United States.

Officer Hannah Farmer and K9 Rouzo team up as the first woman-led K9 unit in Johnson City, VA. Story Link
wcyb.com wrote:Farmer says working with a K9 partner isn't so different from having a human partner, except for the language barrier.

Obviously, K9 Rouzo doesn't talk back like my Radar does :lol:

10-year-old Dutch shepherd, K9 Macho retires from the Purdue University Police Department after 8 years and 905 times being deployed to detect bombs. :hail: Story Link
www.wlfi.com wrote:"I've actually spent more time with him since 2010 than my family. All the way around, it's a very large committment not just on regular shift duty but all the special events we've had to work over the years. It's a lot of time away from home and he's been with me every day," said [Officer Gabe] Argerbright.
K9 Zena, a three-year old Dutch Shepherd joins the Smith County, TX Precinct 1 Story Link
www.kltv.com wrote:Zena is replacing Drako, the previous Precinct 1 K9. "He was a 105-pound German Shepherd, all black, but he's retired due to age, so we're starting over with Zena,” said [Deputy Constable Derick] Holman

Arm teachers? Not quite. Arm the schools with a K9. This opinion piece in the Sun Sentinel (RE: Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School) explains it. Story Link
www.sun-sentinel.com wrote:After the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting, a Dutch Shepherd named Atticus began patrolling the Oak Hills High School in southwest Ohio.
...
These K-9s will not stop every school shooting. But they will change the school from a soft target to a harder target.
