KIMT: Getting To Know The RPD K-9 Unit At UMR CONNECTS

July 13, 2016

(KIMT) -- We've been talking a lot over the past week about police and community relations. As tensions are high throughout the nation, locally, we're continuing to see officers get out into the community.

On Tuesday night, the University of Minnesota Rochester UMR CONNECTS speaker was Officer James Bradley and his K-9 partner, Duke.

Officer Bradley and Duke were joined by two other K-9 Officers; Wrecker and Sarge, along with their handlers. They gave demonstrations on the extensive training the dogs have received in obedience, drug and explosives detection, even suspect apprehension or "bite work."
