Kazimir is the new K-9 on the Elkhart Police Department. The 2-year-old German Shepherd comes from Poland and is trained in handler protection, building and area searches, tracking and explosives. His training in explosives detection makes him one of only three dogs in northern Indiana so trained, according to a news release from Lt. Ed Windbigler, Elkhart Police public information officer. Kazimir’s handler is Elkhart Police Officer Drew Neese. Kazimir replaces Esokt, who also was trained in explosives detection. Esokt retired in the summer of 2009 after developing a medical condition, Windbigler said.
