Ohio: OUPD’s newest K9 team graduates from Explosive Detection Canine school

Ohio University Police Department’s (OUPD) newest K9 team graduated from Explosive Detection Canine (EDC) school last Friday, May 6. The team of OUPD officer Brandon King and his canine partner, Bach, celebrated the momentous occasion with family, friends and members of the Columbus Fire/Bomb Squad, showing off all they accomplished together through the training by putting on a demonstration.

King, who is a 21-year veteran of OUPD, has never had a K9 partner but is excited for the work they will get to do together and the bonding relationship that will continue to form.

“It’s pretty awesome having K9 Bach as a partner,” King said. “Not many people get the opportunity to train and work side by side with an EDC while serving and protecting their community. I look forward to many rewarding days with him.”
