The University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh is welcoming a four-legged friend to campus to enhance public safety and security. 

Skylar, a 2-year-old lab, is trained to sniff out explosives, track individuals and find evidence for crimes. But she will also assist in providing a calmness around campus in stressful situations. 

“Skylar is really a joy to be around and work with. She listens well, is good at her job and has a great temperament. She likes people and is already fitting in well as a member of the University Police team,” says Ben Kohlman, a University Police Officer.

She will be sworn in as part of the UW Oshkosh Police Department and will be paired with Officer Kohlman who has been with the force for three and a half years.
