I attended K9 school at VWK9 in Anniston, Alabama during the summer of 2017. This is where Bacon and I became partners. Bacon is a product of Auburn University’s Canine Science Program breeding program. Bacon and I were based out of the New York division serving the Amtrak Police Department until June 2024.

As a team, we have taken part in countless high profile protection details such as the 2021 Presidential Inauguration in Washington, D.C. Bacon was medically retired in June of 2024. He is enjoying his days at home playing fetch with my wife and 2 children.
