WFPD Gets New K-9…Meet Lock

We here at the Wichita Falls Police Department would like to introduce the newest member to our department, K-9 Officer Lock.

K-9 Officer Lock will be assigned to his partner Officer Bartow with the Gang Task Force Unit and will be assisting in the detection of illegal narcotics (marijuana, methamphetamine, cocaine, and heroin), the location of evidence that has been abandoned or hidden, the tracking of individuals sought by police and the search and rescue of lost or missing persons.

We would like to again thank the Southwest Wichita Falls Rotary Club for the donation to purchase K-9 Officer Lock and the Citizen Police Academy Alumni Association for their donation to help cover the cost of the training and kenneling.
