K9 officer Nick works with his handler Ed Fore of the Federal Protective Services, while Sgt. Steve Hickman of the Michigan State Police (MSP) Bomb Sqaud looks on. The Department of Public Safety hosted 25 canine teams from other Michigan law enforcement agencies last week in a two-day Canine Explosive Detection Training session. The canine officers worked with trainers from the bomb squad and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms in new explosive detection capabilities. Some of the other agencies joining the two U-M K9 teams included the Ann Arbor Police Department, the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Department, the Michigan State University Police Department, the Livingston County Sheriff's Department and the Detroit Police Department. In addition to classroom training, officers performed exercises at Michigan Stadium, a campus parking lot, a warehouse and the Varsity Tennis Center. The exercises included the placement of explosive materials in U-M fleet vehicles. (Photo by Paul Vaughan, U-M DPS)
