UAPD to Receive New K9 Officers

Photo Submitted

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The University of Arkansas Police Department has two new K-9 handlers – which means the UAPD will also be getting two new K9 officers, like the silver labs shown here – except they will be full grown and trained before they start active duty.

But they will be good dogs. Yes they will.

Back to the people:  Ofc. Reilly Thurow has been selected as an explosive detection K9 Handler and will be picking up his new partner (to be named later) in mid June.  The silver lab will begin getting familiar with his new environment right away and then start his training.

Ofc. Tara Wilder has been selected as the K9 handler for a community outreach K9 to be chosen soon. This new K9 team will go to community events and crime prevention programs where people can meet and even pet the dog and ask the handler about police K9s and any other UAPD questions.
