BROKEN ARROW, Okla. - New police dogs for Broken Arrow and Wagoner County have almost completed their training and are ready to hit the streets.
BAPD has been training three new dogs for the past nine weeks, two for the police department and one for Wagoner County. The two agencies have an agreement for BAPD to help train their K-9's.

Loki, Chaos, and Ice are all duel-purpose K-9's. They are trained in both narcotic detection and utility, to help catch wanted people.
The new dogs will help bring BAPD’s K-9 unit back to full staff after losing two dogs last year, one to retirement and the other to cancer.
All three dogs are now certified, and the trainer is getting some fine-tuning and extra training in before they graduate on April 25.
