Officer Jason Baumgart
Officer Jason Baumgart has been a police officer since 2003 and has been with the Madison Police Department since 2005. During his time with MPD, he has worked night shift patrol. Between 2008 and 2016, Officer Baumgart patrolled the West side of Madison.
In March 2016, Officer Baumgart began his six week K9 Handler Course at Shallow Creek Kennels, in Sharpsville PA. During his time there, he was paired with K9 Allied. K9 Allied is a Belgian Malinois that was born in 2015. K9 Allied was imported from the Netherlands and speaks Dutch. He is a dual purpose dog that is trained in narcotics detection and patrol functions.
K9 Allied was purchased with a generous donation from Laura Harrington. K9 Allied was named after the Allied Drive neighborhood, where Laura is the coordinator of the Allied Drive Learning Center. Officer Baumgart patrolled the Allied Drive neighborhood for eight years before becoming a K9 handler. K9 Allied’s veterinary care is generously donated by Dr. Shawn Hook at Arbor Ridge Pet Clinic.
