Minnesota Moment: Leader of St. Paul PD's Seasoned K-9 Unit Up for Recognition

November 13, 2017 10:32 PM

The St. Paul Police Department's K-9 unit is seasoned. It's the third-oldest such unit in the nation, in fact.

Now, the officer in charge of the unit's training is up for an award. Officer Jason Brodt is nominated for the Great-Mats National Dog Trainer of the Year.


He's in charge of the unit that trains dogs to find explosives and drugs. But they also look for missing kids, and are involved in community outreach.

Although Brodt has been nominated, he says the recognition is about the team.

St. Paul's K-9 unit is already highly recognized across the nation.
