BISMARCK, ND – The Attorney General will be introducing the newest Bureau of Criminal Investigation officer on Monday, December 2, 2019.
Our newest officer, Hex, is a 2 year old yellow Labrador with specialized training in electronic detection such as hard drives, cell phones, and sim cards. These abilities will be most often utilized as a secondary search tool in conjunction with search warrants. Hex will be demonstrating his abilities at the Office of the Attorney General on Monday, December 2, 2019, at 3:00 pm.
Hex was trained through Jordan Detection K9 and came to the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation following his graduation certification on November 15, 2019. He was funded by Operation Underground Railroad with Homeland Security purchasing equipment to accompany him. Hex is the first ever electronic detection K9 in the upper Midwest.
