HOOVER — The Hoover Police Department introduced its newest Hoover High School narcotics K9 and resource officer on Tuesday. Obi, a 1-and-a-half-year-old pure-bred lab, will take to the grounds of the high school with his newest partner, officer Kyle Brohl.
Obi began his law enforcement career in January 2019. He finished his training with a handler late this past year. His primary job will be as a narcotics K9 and resource officer, according to a HPD Facebook post.
“He’s very hyper and energetic,” Brohl said. “That’s good for having him with the kids. A kid might be having a bad day and next thing you know they’re coming down to pet Obi. They have a smile on their face for the 10 seconds that they’re petting them. Things like that he’s good for.”
