​Precinct 8 K-9 Program

Precinct 8 initiated its canine program in June 2012 following a generous donation from K9s4Cops, a local organization that provides trained police dogs to agencies who would otherwise not be able to afford the costs.  Upon being awarded a grant, our agency was able to obtain our first K9.  Today, the team consists of 2 highly trained canines that are certified in unique K9 disciplines. 




In 2015, Precinct 8 was once again selected by K9s4Cops to receive a grant for an additional K9. As a result, K9 "Evo" was selected by Precinct 8 from AMK9 in Anniston, Alabama.  Evo is a Belgian Malinois born on 11/2/2012 in Holland.  He is certified in Obedience, Article Search, Area Search, Tracking, Building Search, Aggression Control and Narcotics Detection.  Evo began patrolling the streets of Precinct 8 in March 2015 and is currently paired with his handler, Deputy Troy Brinkley.




In 2017, K9 "Rocco" was added to the Precinct 8 K9 team.  Rocco was also granted to us by K9s4Cops and is dually trained in Patrol/Tracking and Explosives detection.  In 2013, Rocco was crowned the K9s4Cops "Fast Dog" Champion at the Texas K9 Officers Conference and Trials.  He posted a sprint speed of 31 mph!  Deputy Thomas Hays was selected to be Rocco's handler and the two of them underwent 9 weeks of specialized handler training before hitting the streets.  

We would like to thank K9s4Cops for making this program a reality for our Department.  To find out more about the work they are doing, please visit their website at k9s4cops.org.
