POLICE K-9 OFFICERS

              "Take a Bite Out of Crime"               

K-9 Riggs a Belgian Malinois is a dual purpose Patrol/Narcotics Detector Dog born in Holland in 2009.   He began working with Officer Cox in August 2010 when they both spent 10 weeks in Illinois State Police K-9 Academy where they successfully graduated in November 2010.  K-9 Pato, also a Belgian Malinois, joined the Bradley Police in 2014 after serving with K-MEG for several years.  Pato was assigned to Officer O'Connor who became a certified handler.

Riggs & Pato are trained and certified through the Illinois State Police in Tracking, Building Searches, Area Searches, Article Searches, Obedience, Suspect Apprehension, Handler Protection, and Narcotics Detection.   The Bradley Police K-9 Unit trains continuously to maintain the skills which are needed to "take a bite out of crime".   K-9 Riggs & Pato has provided much needed assistance to State, County, and Local Jurisdictions throughout the Kankakee County area.  

 

 

In addition to our primary role as a Law Enforcement support and patrol unit, K-9 Riggs & Officer Cox and K-9 Pato & Officer O'Connor foster community support while attending public functions and demonstrations, which allows K-9 Riggs & Pato to meet thousands of people throughout the community.
