CSU Welcomes Lieutenant Canine Duk to CSU Police

Columbus State University Police Department’s newest officer was sworn in on Friday by Chief Mark Lott. Lieutenant Duk, an 18-month old golden retriever, joined the department with a warm welcome from students, faculty and staff.

“We are so proud to have Duk join us,” said Chief Lott. “Duk will be a goodwill ambassador for CSU police and the CSU community.”

Born and raised in Germany, Duk is specially trained to detect narcotics in various aspects. He will live and work with Sergeant Jon Erickson, who has been with CSU Police for four years and has previous experience handling police canines.
