LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The Las Vegas Raiders this week visited the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department K-9 Division to meet the newest addition to the team, K-9 Raider, who was purchased for the unit by the Silver and Black.

The Raiders contingent also distributed customized trading cards to each member of the K-9 unit that showed the officers posing with their four-legged fellow crime fighters.


Raiders Alumni Kenny Shedd and Steve Wisniewski and team President Marc Badain toured the facility, attended a debrief, then presented the cards that will be distributed by the officers to members of the Las Vegas community.

Wisniewski’s son is a Las Vegas Metropolitan Police officer, while Shedd is currently an officer with the San Leandro Police Department in California.

The Raiders also doled out Raiders-themed dog toys to the K-9 crime fighters and concluded the visit enjoying a meal with the officers.
