The Eureka Police Department is pleased to introduce K9 Bodhi, a two-year-old Labrador Retriever. Bodhi is trained to detect narcotics (heroin, methamphetamine, and cocaine) firearms, and ammunition.

 

Bodhi is assigned to the multi-agency Humboldt County Drug Task Force (HCDTF) to combat sales, manufacturing, and distribution of illegal drugs in Humboldt County. Bodhi’s handler is a Eureka Police Officer currently assigned as a Special Agent with the HCDTF. Bodhi and his handler will be reassigned to the Eureka Police Department once their HCDTF rotation has ended.  

 

Bodhi has already had a successful deployment with the HCDTF, alerting to 6 pounds of heroin during an investigation on July 13, 2020. The Eureka Police Department is proud of their participation and partnership with the HCDTF and anticipates many more successful deployments for Bodhi.
