LAWTON, OK (KSWO) –The Lawton Police Department is proud to introduce their three newest additions.

Two Belgian Malinoises and a Dutch shepherd have joined the Lawton Police Department as the nest K9 units. Their handlers—Sgt. Christopher Adamson, Officer Brittany Schulte and Officer Cameron Patterson—will go through an extensive four-week training with their canine partners.

Two of the dogs will be used for detection and apprehension, and the other will be used solely for detection.

Ory, a Belgian Malinois, will be partnered with Sgt. Adamson.

Be, a Dutch shepherd, will be partnered with Officer Brittany Schulte.

Dino, a Belgian Malinois, will be partnered with Officer Patterson.

The two K9s the Lawton Police Department had were retired in 2015.
