Their services are often requested by Brentwood officers and other law enforcement agencies. Their dedication and teamwork has resulted in the detection and location of illegal drugs and drug contraband.
Officer Holder was selected as the department’s K-9 Handler in March of 2012.
Officer Holder and "Lexie" train twice a month and are certified by the United States Police Canine Association.
