See Spot Guard!

Close to 100 people came out last Saturday to see police dog Odin from the Mountain View Police Department.

Odin was accompanied by his handler Office Doreen Hansen and Sergeant Saul Jaeger. Odin is a German shepard and is about 2.5 years old. He has been working for the police department for about a year and in that time has been responsible for 9 apprehensions! His handler Officer Hansen is responsible for his care and training, and Odin lives with her. Sergeant Jaeger called Officer Hansen a real-life dog whisperer. He also said that she is not only the most senior patrol officer on the force but is also the most senior handler. Odin has received extensive training for his job, which continues once a week on a regular basis.

Those who wanted were able to say hi and give Odin a pat.
