We haven’t had a #K9Apollo update in awhile and we have been getting asked fairly frequently about how he is doing since his LivePD appearance. Apollo had a VERY busy 2020 that was nearly cut short by an injury.
In the fall, Apollo underwent two separate surgeries for a slipped disc in his back and spent nine nights in the doggy hospital. He returned to full-duty status in November.
During 2020, Apollo assisted detectives with locating and seizing nearly $1 million dollars during narcotic interdiction operations as part of the Tukwila Anti-Crime (TAC) Unit. Our TAC Unit detectives handle narcotic, vice and human trafficking related crimes. They participate in local and regional efforts to combat human trafficking, provide resources to victims of human trafficking and work to take illegal narcotics and firearms off the streets.
