Officer Eric Disch
Police Officer Eric Disch has been a police officer since 2003 and began working for the Madison Police Department in 2010. Prior to working in Madison he worked for the City of Fitchburg and City of Whitewater Police Departments. Before becoming a K9 handler he was a Field Training Officer (FTO), Professional Communications Instructor and Standardized Field Sobriety Test (SFST) Instructor.
Officer Disch served as a decoy with the MPD K9 Unit before becoming a handler. He has always had a passion for dogs and quickly understood the impact they can have on serving the community. Officer Disch was teamed with K9 Jagger in February 2015. K9 Jagger is a Belgian Malinois/German Shepherd who was born October 2013 and imported from Slovakia. Officer Disch and K9 Jagger completed a four-week training course at Tarheel Kennels in North Carolina.
K9 Jagger was purchased with a generous donation from the BerbeeWalsh Foundation who picked the name "Jagger," after the Rolling Stones lead singer, Mick Jagger.
