Woodland PD’s Newest Four-Legged Enforcer: K9 Bruno Hits the Ground Running

The Woodland Police Department proudly announces the latest addition to its K9 unit, a partnership that exemplifies dedication and enthusiasm for law enforcement. Officer Jacobo and K9 Bruno, as captured in the attached image, have completed a rigorous 320-hour basic handler school, equipping them with the essential skills for patrol operations and narcotics detection.

K9 Bruno, an 18-month-old Belgian Malinois with a friendly demeanor and a penchant for companionship, is the embodiment of the department’s commitment to community-oriented policing. Thanks to the City Council’s approval and funding from the Opioid Relief Fund, Bruno’s position was secured, reflecting the city’s proactive stance in combating drug-related issues.

This dynamic duo is more than ready to serve the Woodland community. With their recent certification, they stand as a testament to the department’s investment in advanced training and readiness. K9 Bruno’s affable nature doesn’t just make him a hit at community events, but also an effective member of the police force, with an already notable achievement under his collar.

On New Year’s Eve, K9 Bruno demonstrated his training and instincts by locating narcotics, leading to a significant arrest. This successful operation marks just the beginning of what promises to be a stellar career in law enforcement for Bruno, with Officer Jacobo by his side.

Residents can expect to see K9 Bruno on regular patrols, adding a layer of security to the streets of Woodland. His sharp senses and swift action will be invaluable assets in the ongoing efforts to ensure a safe and peaceful community.

The Woodland Police Department is thrilled to have K9 Bruno as part of the team and looks forward to his continued success. We commend Officer Jacobo and K9 Bruno for their hard work and dedication, and we are confident that they will make a positive impact on our city.

Here’s to K9 Bruno and Officer Jacobo: may your partnership foster safety and justice in Woodland, and may your story inspire others within and beyond our city limits. Welcome aboard, Bruno!
