La Vista Police Introduce Their New K9

The La Vista Police Department has Hart – a 17-month old German Shepherd from the Czech Republic.

In four months, the K9 crime-fighter was trained to detect drugs, search buildings and protect his handler, Officer John Danderand.

While Hart is fully trained to patrol, Danderand said he still has a lot of learning to do.

Danderand said, “It's kind of like a police officer that just graduates the academy - you don't know everything and it takes additional training and time on the job 'til you really start figuring things out and get into a groove."

Hart is replacing Danderand’s previous K9 who retired after eight years of service.
