Police Service Dogs


The Brandon Police Service Dog Unit currently has two Police Service Dogs: a Belgian Malinois named “Storm” and a Belgian Malinois named “Karma”. PSD Storm completed his training at the age of 20 months.  Storm is the first BPS Police Service Dog trained and validated through the Office of the Fire Commissioner. PSD Karma was acquired as a puppy from the Winnipeg Police Service K9 breeding program. PSD Karma was raised by her handler from the age of 8 weeks old. Karma and her handler were trained by the Winnipeg Police Service K9 Unit in 2014.




Storm - Police Service Dog

The Brandon Police Service Dogs are trained in obedience, agility, evidence searching (drugs/guns/human scent related articles), area searches, building searches, criminal apprehension and tracking. In addition to their patrol work, the Police Service Dogs and their handlers are part of the Tactical Response Unit. The Police Service Dog Unit trains weekly and completes a validation every year. BPS welcomed its newest Police Service Dog, Storm, in December 2017.
