At Patrol East you can find a somewhat vicious dog named Nora. Not so much does she believe it is, but not so much a bark that is bigger than its bite. Nora has an interesting story. It hasn’t always been called Patrol East Home, it’s the station’s dog. Now, in Darfur, Captain Kevin Cock says a woman came into the station and heard that she heard what sounded like screaming or crying from a nearby dumpster. Box surrounded by rubbish. So they brought them in and cleaned them up. Well, after about a month or so, it ended up in my house permanently. Come on, Nora goes to work with him every day and serves as sort of a new member of the team. Yeah you know it’s time and there she rides and even goes out on calls. Maybe not as big as a typical police dog. You would expect to see your little dumpster dog while she wasn’t warming up while our cameras were in her office. She warmed up for the officer. She has quirks, just like everyone else, everyone else, every other victim we come into contact with after going through her story and stuff. And she already helps children who are involved in traumatic accidents and cases. It’s positive for the kids. It’s positive for the police. It just worked out great. That’s when I knew we were into something.

The Wichita Police Department had no plans to adopt a dog. But now one of her stops in Kansas is the home of a puppy named Nora. Captain Kevin Kochenderfer told KWCH that a woman heard noises from a nearby dumpster. When investigating, Kochenderfer found a month-old Nora on a rubbish heap. Kochenderfer took them in to clean them up. The rest is history. “Probably for a month and a half the staff and I switched who would look after the dog in the evening, and eventually it ended up in my house permanently after about a month,” he told the television station. Despite being smaller than the typical police dog, Nora is now Kochenderfer’s partner in crime, accompanying him to work and even on call. Kochderfer calls Nora “our little garbage dog”, who has also convinced other officers in the department. Nora is also popular with children, who bring comfort to some who have experienced traumatic events: “It’s positive for the children, it’s positive for the police,” said Kochenderfer. “It just worked out great. That’s why I knew we were into something.”
