Five New K9's Grace Nebraska State Patrol Calendar


The Nebraska State Patrol introduces the newest police service dogs with a calendar that is available to the public.

“Our Police Service Dog Unit does phenomenal work across our entire state,” said Captain Jason Scott, Commander of the NSP Special Operations Division. “With so many new faces in the unit, this is a great way to introduce them to the public and to also say thank you to the NSP Foundation for their financial support of our K9 program.”

The newest dogs are:

Blu – German Shorthaired Pointer, based in Omaha

Gable – Belgian Malinois, based in Omaha

Havik – Belgian Malinois, based in Columbus

Jerry – German Malinois, based in Lexington (named to honor Trooper Jerry Smith badge #373)

Tilt – Belgian Malinois, based in Lincoln

Four of these five dogs have already gone through training and certification and are already on patrol.

The final new addition in 2021, Tilt, is going through those steps right now.

The NSP PSD unit trains and certifies NSP K9's, as well as K9's for many agencies across Nebraska and Iowa, at the NSP Training Academy in Grand Island.

The Nebraska State Patrol 2022 Calendar will feature the 11 dogs who are currently part of the PSD unit, as well as honor the four working or retired K9's who have passed away this year.

The calendars are available for purchase through "ArtFX."

The Nebraska State Patrol does not receive any revenue from this project and ArtFX has agreed to sell the calendars at cost to keep the price as low as possible.
