The Tipp City Police Department K-9 Unit is comprised of a male Belgian Malinois named Pasha. Pasha is handled by Officer Parrish Brazel and is trained in narcotic detection, tracking, article search, obedience, and patrol apprehension. Pasha was born in Germany and imported to the United States where he was purchased and trained by Police Dog Services in Germantown, Ohio and Ohio Department of Natural Resources K9 Academy. Pasha went through 700 hours of training before hitting the streets. Pasha also has bi-weekly maintenance training to maintain his skills. When not at work, Pasha lives with Officer Brazel and her family, subject to call out at any time.
K9 Pasha has been in full service since March 2018. Pasha’s patrol car is equipped with a transport insert and a heat alarm to protect him while on duty. Custom air circulation and cooling equipment are also installed to prevent overheating, as the safety of the dog is of utmost importance.
We are very grateful for all of the support the community and the city have provided. K9 Pasha’s service adds to a rich history of police canines with the Tipp City Police Department. The purchase and maintenance of these dogs is an expensive endeavor. It is made possible with the support of Dr. Martin English D.V.M, Dr. Kelly Young D.V.M and Dr. Johanna Smith D.V.M. Donations and support funding are handled through Tipp Monroe Community Services.
