CB welcomes Vadar, new K-9 dog

Council member Burkett Lyburn cautioned that Vadar, Colonial Beach’s new four-legged officer is "very mean."
Although Vadar picked up on Lyburn’s fear by growling at him, his handler, Patrolman Brown showed expert control allowing Lyburn and Chief Hawkins to pose with them.
Vadar is a Patrol Utility Dog trained for handler protection and finding suspects. He is utilized for tracking suspects, searching buildings and article searching. If a person robs a bank, Vadar can not only track the suspect, but can find items dropped by the suspect along the way, such as a gun, money or article of clothing.
Vadar is trained to pick up various scents from a suspect such as human odor, perfume or alcohol. He is capable of clearing a building, meaning he can detect and indicate if a suspect is in a building or not. He has been trained to overcome obstacles that a suspect may maneuver through while running from the law.
“Vadar’s handler, Patrolman Everett Brown was chosen because he is young and in top physical shape which is required to keep up with K-9 Vadar.” said Chief Hawkins.
Brown trained right along with Vadar for 14 long weeks and they are now a working team with the Colonial Beach Police Department. A week before on Friday the 12th Vadar and Brown where called upon to track a suspect for Breaking and Entering but unfortunately the trail was over 4 hours old and the scent was too faint to track.
Vadar would not be used for tracking lost children or Alzheimer’s patients because he is trained to be aggressive. Different dogs are trained for different uses. Vadar lives with Brown but does not interact with any other members of the family. This is necessary to keep Vadar focused on his training to be aggressive in the pursuit of suspects.
