K9’s have a rich history of working with law enforcement and military units dating back to the 1800’s. Police K9’s receive specific training to assist law enforcement in ways other tools cannot. It often takes a trained K9 team only minutes to check a building or large open area for suspects, where it might take hours and many officers to safely contain, locate and apprehend the wanted suspects.
It is always amazing that when the K9 team arrives—the suspects tend to become very cooperative, and they seldom try to run or hide from the officers. The dogs and their handlers occasionally visit local schools and perform demonstrations for the public.
A special thanks to the community and K9 supporters who donated to K9 Timur. K9 Timur, the K9 vehicle, training and equipment needed for an additional K9 Team was funded completely by donations. K9 Timur is a male Belgian Malinois from Slovakia. K9 Timur and his partner Officer McCallon graduated Adlerhorst Int. K9 Handlers class #238 on 11/19. K9 Timur will be Uplands second K9 team.
