Categories: Campus

UM Police dogs Hooch and BobMeet Hooch and Bob, the newest members of the UM Police Department. Both black labs—Hooch, left, is six, and Bob is four—are military veterans and are trained to sniff out explosives. Hooch actually served in Afghanistan, protecting troops from roadside bombs. The dogs will use that training to aid UM Police in special events, such as Griz football games and visits from dignitaries. The UM police officers who handle the dogs, Officer Darren Ginn and Sergeant Rich Zitzka, also are military veterans.
