Two new canine teams are out on patrol for the Coon Rapids Police Department.
Officer Interna Kim and Belgian Malinois Ike, along with officer Brian Sternquist and Belgian Malinois Taz, graduated from training school in June. The canine units are assigned to the Patrol Division and assist with a variety of police activities and investigations.
"There's no comparison," says K9 officer Interna Kim. "Dogs can search a field that would take 10 to 20 officers, all in a fraction of the time. They help us with investigations in ways that are extremely vital to policing. The dogs are valuable tools for the department and they do great work.”
Officer Brian Sternquist says, “Taz is a hard worker and he’s excited to go to work. His keen instincts, sense of smell and training have all helped him become an amazing tracking dog.”
