K9 training conducted at former Standish Max prison

Posted

STANDISH — Law enforcement personnel from Saginaw, Grand Blanc and Arenac County gathered for a K9 training at the Standish Maximum Correctional Facility Tuesday, Jan. 23.

Arenac County Deputy Eric Hribek and his K9, Jagger, participated in the training, which was led by Magnum K9 Trainer Scott LaRoe.

Also in attendance were Saginaw City Police Department K9 Officer Doug Stacer and his dog, who cannot be named because he hasn’t been introduced officially to the public yet, Saginaw City Police K9 Handler Brad Holp and his dog Cigan, and City of Grand Blanc Police Department Sgt. Jim Jolman and his dog Kash.

They focused on areas such as obedience, handler protection and behavior. Different drugs were also hidden in lockers and desk drawers for the K9s to find. When drugs were found, the K9s sat down to show they had located the drugs and were rewarded with a toy.

Officers and their K9s are required to attend trainings at least twice a month, which are led by LaRoe and hosted at different locations throughout the state.
