Bakersfield Police's newest four-legged addition adds a very unique skill to the department. 

K9 Duke is a 2-year-old Belgian Malinois and, according to BPD, a very good boy. He is currently the only gun detecting dog in the K9 unit. 

K9 Duke has been partnered with Senior Officer Jason Felgenhauer.
