Ofc. Joe Smith and the NLRPD K9 Unit

On today’s episode we talk with Ofc. Joe Smith, he is the lead handler in our K9 unit.  He is an amazing guy and he loves what he does.  He is also leading the way into the future of our K9 program by initiating the NLRPD K9 Foundation!  Check out their facebook page and also their web page!

I’m still trying to make this a more enjoyable podcast, and will be ending the interviews by asking the guys/gals what song they would enter the sports arena to, if they were a professional athlete!  Joe’s choice of song is epic, in that it leaves me with a mental picture that is uncomfortable and slightly painful!  Haha   (It’s barking mad and will take a bite out of your funny bone)  Ok, that was bad….but listen to his song choice after the interview, then stay tuned for the legal clarification about the Center Left Turn Lane!

Please tell your friends and family that if they are not listening to our PodCast, they are missing out!
