Meet Byron's new K-9, 'Yukon'

By Jake Leif

Byron Review Summer Intern

The joint unit between the Olmsted County Sheriff's Office and the Rochester Police Department just recently trained in a new dog for its K-9 unit.

The German Shepherd, named Yukon, finished up a 13-week academy put on by the St. Paul Police Department at the end of May. Both Yukon and his handler Deputy Brandon Bornhorst will continue learning later in the year at a training on explosive detection during the fall.

"K9 Yukon has been selected to be an explosives dog which will allow him to search for and alert on anything containing an explosive device," Bornhorst said.

Yukon has already been trained in programs such as criminal apprehension, article/evidence recovery, open area searches, building searches, and many more.

With 10 dogs between the two departments, the range of skills between the animals varies greatly.

Read the rest in the Byron Review print edition.
