While K9 Grendel, a handsome Belgian Malinois, was an active patrol K9, he had a very impressive record. His partner, Sgt.Jackie Knudsen, trained him well. He caught and held (K9s“hold” by their teeth – also called “bites”) at least five criminals who unfortunately thought they could out run a trained patrol K9.
Retired K9 Deputy Arco (means bow or arch) was a black and red Belgian Malinois from the Netherlands. He was born in August 2004 and started with LCSO in 2006 after extensive training in patrol and narcotics. He was also the poster K9 for the LCSO Crime Prevention Unit’s magnet.
