At our event 'Unleashed' last Saturday at The Boneyard, we hosted a local celebrity. Four-year old Ella (and her brother Easton) came to ...say hello to the K9s. Ella wants to be a police officer - specifically a K9 handler - when she grows up. She's already got an excellent rapport with our four-legged officers. She was able to meet K9 Allied; K9 Patton; K9 Charlie; and K9 Domo. When they're not busy keeping our community safe, these hard-working officers (human & canine) are the best ambassadors the city could want. Thank you to everyone who attended.

Dog of the month K9 Allied loved showing off his obedience skills at Unleashed last Saturday. It was super interesting for the dogs in attendance, many of them gathered at the fence to watch the show. 🐾
The K9 squad cars are equipped with 'door poppers,' which allow the officers to remotely open the doors to release the K9. The dogs are instructed to seek and find their human, which is very helpful in an emergency. Ofc Baumgart & K9 Allied work the night shift - and just like all the K9s, when they're not working, they're training. Some 3 am shifts might find them using the door poppers and playing hide-and-seek in empty parking lots. Saturday, they demonstrated a long 'down stay' with Ofc. Baumgart out of sight. Impressive obedience K9 Allied!
This K9 unit is completely funded by your donations, and we thank you!
