Officer Moyster and Xander
K9 Xander is a 4 year old German Shepard dog. He enjoys his work which includes searching for illegal drugs and patrol work. Xander is originally from the Czech Republic so his commands are in Czech. When he’s not at work he likes to spend his time going for long hikes, swimming in the creek, retrieving Kong balls, and relaxing at his handler’s house.

Officer Thomas and Roller
K9 Roller is a German shepherd dual-purpose K9 that is trained to alert on several forms of narcotics. K9 Roller hails from the Czech Republic and also speaks Czech. Although Roller primarily understands Czech, he also is bilingual when it comes to terms such as, “treat, go for a walk, wrestle, and his least favorite bath time”.
Roller was purchased with funds donated from Roller Funeral Home in North Little Rock. We are extremely grateful for Roller Funeral Home’s investment in our K9 program to assist the citizens of North Little Rock.
K9 Roller enjoys rough housing with his brother, a boxer named Mack, working, chasing his ball, and sniffing around for hidden things. Roller also thoroughly enjoys rolling in any form of mud, clay, dirt, and/or water. Roller also spends most of his free time chewing on all sorts of items such as; his toys, a tire, rocking chairs, and the occasional rock.
K9 Roller is the youngest and smallest K9 at NLRPD’s disposal, however, he makes up for it in drive, work ethic, and mentality.
Sergeant Lyon and Tio
Tio is a 4 year old Belgian Malinois. He was born in Belgium then imported to the United States by a civilian in Mountain Home. The civilian in turn donated Tio to the North Little Rock Police Department. Prior to accepting Tio, our training officer conducted a thorough evaluation of him to determine if he would be qualified for our program. Tio passed with flying colors. We are extremely grateful to the citizen from Mountain Home that contacted us with the opportunity of Tio. There are very few times when a citizen believes a K9 would be a qualified Police dog, that the dog actually passes the evaluation. Tio was the first dog in 20 years to be accepted as a donation.
Tio is a dual purpose Explosive/Patrol dog. Tio loves to locate explosive odors and show off his abilities. When Tio is at work he also loves to bump your leg with his head to let you know that he needs attention.
Tio lives at home with his sister a Ridgeback. His sister enjoys chasing and barking at Tio every day when Tio and his handler play fetch.
Tio’s favorite toy is an item that can be thrown and returned. He loves chasing water as it comes out of the hose and disassembling anything with stuffing.
