LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – The Nebraska State Patrol introduced five new police service dogs with their 2022 calendar.

The calendar is available to the public and features the five new K9s and honors the four working or retired K9s who passed away this year.

“With so many new faces in the unit, this is a great way to introduce them to the public and to also say thank you to the NSP Foundation for their financial support of our K9 program,” said Captain Jason Scott, Commander of the NSP Special Operations Division.

The newest NSP service dogs are:

  • Blu – German Shorthaired Pointer, based in Omaha
  • Gable – Belgian Malinois, based in Omaha
  • Havik – Belgian Malinois, based in Columbus
  • Jerry – German Malinois, based in Lexington (named to honor Trooper Jerry Smith #373)
  • Tilt – Belgian Malinois, based in Lincoln

Four of the dogs have already been trained and certified, already serving Nebraska. The last dog, Tilt, is going through the training and certification process right now.
