Jack is the first for the Maui Police Department. The Labrador is a single-purpose dog that will be deployed for appropriate missing person cases.

The Maui Police Department introduced its newly acquired scent-tracking dog at a media meet-and-greet held today (Thursday, March 2, 2017) at the Honolulu Police Department’s training academy on Oʻahu.

The dog, a Labrador named Jack, is a single-purpose dog that will be deployed for appropriate missing person cases. In the past, MPD would have to rely on HPD for use of their dog, which would entail having to wait for them to fly over.

Jack was purchased by the Friends of the Missing Children Center Hawaiʻi, and is the first for the Maui Police Department.

The dog and its handler are currently training with the HPD K-9 unit all week.

The Friends of the Missing Children Center also paid for HPD’s dog, a bloodhound named Reba.
