August 2014 – KIMTEK was contacted by Orleans County Sheriff, Kirk Martin, regarding a K9 platform to be built in one of their existing cruisers. As huge supporters of local law enforcement, KIMTEK President, Kimball Johnson, honorably agreed to the job.
K9 Kilo joined the Orleans County Sheriff’s Department in early August of 2014 and will be trained by Officer Jacobs as a Narcotic Detection Dog for Orleans County. Drug-crimes are on the rise in the community so having a K9 added to the department’s team is a huge asset to our county.
KIMTEK personnel were able to remove the existing rear seats of the SUV cruiser and using aluminum tubing, aluminum diamond plate, and soft rubber matting, constructed a flat surface area for K9 Kilo to comfortably lie while being transported in the vehicle.
KIMTEK is proud to have had a hand in the process and is excited to hear of the achievements Officer Jacobs and K9 Kilo accomplish during their career together.
