LUPD K9 Units
Liberty University Police Department utilizes K9 Units to ensure further safety of the students, faculty, and staff while attending major events.
K9 Officer Hvezda joined LUPD in the Fall of 2018 as our first detection dog. Her job is restricted to smelling and detecting explosives, only. She went through specialty training for several months until she received her Police badges. Her handler works and trains with her throughout the year to stay up-to-date on the most current and effective detection methods.
If seen on campus, her handler would like you to know that Hvezda wear harnesses and collars that indicate when they are hard at work.
While there may be times that interactions are be permitted, please consult her handler first. Hvezda enjoys spreading smiles across campus when she is not hard at work sniffing campus to keep students safe.
In her off time, Hvezda loves to chew on tennis balls and run around outside in beautiful weather.
