New K-9

The Oro Valley Police Department was recently awarded funding from the National Rifle Association for the purchase of a new police canine. Canine Lara joined the OVPD in May 2011. She is a Belgian Malinois who was imported from Holland and received her training in explosive detection and certification, along with her handler, Officer Brian Marvin, in Texas. Lara and Marvin, pictured here, are active members of the Pima Regional Bomb Squad, a multi-agency partnership.
