WALLER COUNTY, Tex. (KBTX)- A Waller County Sheriff's Deputy and his K9 partner are being recognized for their work that led to the capture of a man suspected of killing a state trooper on Thanksgiving Day.
Deputy Andrew Blauser and his K9 partner, Odin, are among the many law enforcement officers credited with tracking down the suspected gunman in a rural area between Prairie View and Hempstead.
K9s4COPs gifted K9 Odin to the Waller County Sheriff's Office this year.
"Help us place more dogs like Odin in departments across the nation. We can't do it without your help and support," the K9s4COPs organization posted on Facebook.
Any donation will help the group fun these amazing K9s and place them in communities.
Founded in 2010, K9s4Cops is a 501(c)(3) non-profit Foundation whose mission is to ensure that every law enforcement agency, school district and campus be provided a well-trained K9 by their handlers side, ready for action.
By January 2015, the group's K9’s have successfully aided in the capture of suspects, recovered lost children, detected explosives in public venues and removed in excess of $60 million of contraband off the streets.
All of these actions resulted in the life-saving protection of the officers.
