Like all of the Capital K9s, K9 Patton received a new lightweight ballistic vest this year, thanks to donations made via Keeping K-9s in Kevlar. ...The officers could have anything embroidered inside the vest that they chose. K9 Patton's: "You don't lose if you get knocked down. You lose if you stay down."
Calls for K9s are increasing, along with vehicle thefts, 'shots fired' and violence in general in our city. Thanks to Dog of the Month K9 Patton for always being ready to go. You never have to ask him twice.

Car thefts are on the 'swift' increase in Madison, according to a recent announcement by the Madison Police Department. Dog of the month ...K9 Patton has been taking those crimes very seriously for a while now. On December 28, 2021, a stolen car was spotted at a local gas station; it was associated with multiple other stolen auto reports in the city.
Ofc. Lewis & K9 Patton got a scent from the abandoned vehicle and followed a track through a populated neighborhood to an apartment complex. Three suspects were found hiding in a common area of the building and arrested without incident. Multiple keys from other stolen vehicles were found on the suspects.
Only a trained K9 has the nose to enable them to make a long track, distinguish and stick to the targeted smell, and be on hand to help with a safe arrest. Super hero indeed. 🐾

K9 Patton had a busy day on June 10. After demonstrating his super sniffing abilities at a community demo, he did the same, for real, on his day ...job. A vehicle attempted to elude an officer after a traffic stop and it crashed into a retaining wall. A suspect ran from the car, possibly carrying a bag. Dog of the month K9 Patton was consulted and he picked up the scent from the car and followed a track, looking for discarded items along the way.
The driver was charged with eluding, possession of heroin, hit and run, and driving without a license. Just another day at the office for Patton. Ofc. Lewis is doing excellent police work, while simultaneously training and maintaining this incredible high-drive animal. Grateful for their service. 🐾
