Officer Michelle Smith & Hasj, Barstow, Florida Police Department

As told by Officer Smith

“There was a guy who was wanted for armed kidnapping and sexual battery. He had already been charged with attempted murder of a law enforcement officer. When we caught up with him, he was probably two football fields away from us. I would’ve never got him—but Hasj did.  That’s the value of the dogs. There were probably ten of us that were out there trying to catch him. We would’ve never caught him, but Hasj did. Those are the kind of people that we need the dogs for. I’ve never not felt safe when I had him around. I trust him more than I trust most of my human partners. I never doubt whether he’s going to come through for me.”
