Special Agent Bismarck

Special Agent Bismarck is a German Shepherd mix who works as an Explosives Detection Canine (EDC) in the Philadelphia Division. Bismarck and his handler Senior Division Bomb Technician Mike Baker have successfully completed the 400 hour EDC course at the Philadelphia Police Department Canine Training Unit in January 2003. Bismarck also passed his United States Police Canine Association Certification in January 2003. Bismarck is assigned to the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF), SQ-12.

Bismarck is the second EDC in the Philadelphia Division. Bismarck is tasked to perform bomb sweeps in support of the JTTF. Bismarck loves to train because when he makes a find, he gets to play with his favorite toy. Finding explosives is a game for Bismarck and he knows that when he makes a correct find its playtime. Bismarck trains every day to keep up his skills.

In his off-duty time Bismarck loves to go for runs and go swimming with his handler.

Personal message: Bismarck says, " Never play or touch explosives, if you see them call the police and report them."

FBI Philadelphia would like to extend its' gratitude to Police Officer Paul Bryant and the Philadelphia Police Department Canine Unit for providing the training for both Bandit and Bismarck.
