Lookin’ good, Scout! How about this… Officer Nickerson and Scout were recently featured in the book “Loyal. 38 Inspiring Tales of Bravery, Heroism, and the Devotion of Dogs.” The National Geographic book includes stories about “dedicated working dogs who have gone above and beyond the call of duty.” The author of the book, Rebecca Ascher-Walsh, reached out to BPD almost a year ago and arranged to interview Officer Nickerson and Boise Police Chief Bill Bones about the beloved scruffy K9. The two explained how Scout came to BPD, and just how big of an impact he has on helping out in the community and breaking down barriers. From classrooms to courtrooms, nursing homes to the streets of Downtown Boise, Scout is always willing to help out whomever and wherever he can. Which is why we all appreciate him and are very proud of his recent fame! Good boy, Scout!
