Zaback and his handler La Crosse Police Officer Trenton Bowe will work second shift. There are already K-9 units on first and third.
Officer Bowe says with all Zaback’s training, he is a valuable member of their department.
“He allows for a lot more opportunities to get those drugs in vehicles or like I said, he’s a good tool where he can protect officers by, if we have to go search in a house he can be the first one in instead of us,” Officer Bowe said.
