BPD Welcomes New K9 Teams

BEND, OR -- Two new K9 officers recently joined the Bend Police Department. Doug and his human partner Officer Jeff Perkins, and Harry with his human partner Officer Leigh Anne Boileau were certified in December. 

They are “apprehension dogs,” which means they are trained to nab a fleeing or hiding suspect. BPD officials say deploying a K9 "can provide a faster resolution to a challenging and dangerous situation, and can increase officer safety."

Harry is a nearly two-year-old German Shepherd from Slovakia and Doug is a Dutch Shepherd from Germany, who turns two on Wednesday. Both come to Bend from Tarheel Canine Training, Inc in North Carolina.
