Help name Hibbing’s new K-9

A new electronic detection K-9 is coming to Hibbing. The police department said the K-9 is a two-year-old female black Labrador Retriever and is currently housed with Jordan Detection K-9 in Greenfield, Indiana.

They were able to obtain the K-9 through grant assistance from Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.)

Handler Officer Brittany Dillinger will be attending training at Jordan Detection K-9 and the dog will be put into service in our region in late March.

The agency says they are looking for the community’s help in naming the new K-9.

If you have a name suggestion, please email Officer Brittany Dillinger at

Send in your nominations until February 6th, and then the department will announce the name on February 7th.

The individual’s nomination we select will get a meet and greet with the K9 and Officer Dillinger. They will also get the opportunity to do a ride along with the K-9 and Officer Dillinger.
