In addition to the work done by our human employees, Delta Force offers explosives detection services made possible by "Delta". She is a Belgian Malinios who has a incredible loyalty, a keen nose along with amazing abilities. “She searches for explosives that could be in buildings, vehicles, open areas, arenas, parcels (and) packages,” Barron — who also serves as Delta’s handler — said.
As the access to K-9 units for explosives detection is limited in the Upper Peninsula, Delta Force offers Delta’s services free to local law enforcement.
Molly Barron & K9 "Delta" completed their law enforcement training course in NAPCH & Oakland Police K9 Academy Explosive Awareness Class & K9 Workshop in 2018.

News: Delta Force P.I. K9 Delta Receives Donation of Body Armor
In 2019, Delta Force P.I. K9 "Delta" received a bullet and stab protective vest thanks to a charitable donation from non-profit organization Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. K9 Delta’s vest is sponsored by Sharon M. Peters of Grosse Pointe Shores, MI. It was embroidered with the sentiment “In memory of Det. Lt. Richard J. Scott”.
Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. is a 501c (3) charity located in East Taunton, MA whose mission is to provide bullet and stab protective vests and other assistance to dogs of law enforcement and related agencies throughout the United States. The non-profit was established in 2009 to assist law enforcement agencies with this potentially lifesaving body armor for their four-legged K9 officers. Since its inception, Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. provided over 3,400 protective vests, in 50 states, through private and corporate donations, at a value of $5.7 million dollars.
The program is open to dogs actively employed in the U.S. with law enforcement or related agencies who are certified and at least 20 months of age. New K9 graduates, as well as K9s with expired vests, are eligible to participate.
The donation to provide one protective vest for a law enforcement K9 is $950.00. Each vest has a value between $1,744 – $2,283 and a five-year warranty, and an average weight of 4-5 lbs. There is an estimated 30,000 law enforcement K9s throughout the United States. For more information or to learn about volunteer opportunities, please call 508-824-6978. Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. provides information, lists events, and accepts tax-deductible donations of any denomination at www.vik9s.org or mailed to P.O. Box 9 East Taunton, MA 02718.
Thank you Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. and Mrs. Sharon Peters. Delta will wear her vest with pride and gratitude!
