Campus police hire three dogs for K-9 unit

May 6, 2016

The university’s police department will have some fresh faces in the coming months — German shepherds Odin, Zeus and Max — as part of its new K-9 Unit. In an email, campus police Sgt. Gary Grande said they will be tasked with sniffing for bombs and drugs. He added that the department had looked into incorporating a K-9 unit for quite some time. “[Interim Police Chief Sean] Brammer has always wanted a K-9 unit for the police department,” Grande said. “With me being a former K-9 handler on a university campus, I agreed that it could be a wonderful community-oriented policing unit and provide added safety and security for the campus.”
