Officer Henry Wilson

K9 Unit

Police Officer Henry Wilson has been an officer with the Madison Police Department since October, 1984. In addition to regular patrol duties, Officer Wilson has worked in the following positions: Allied Drive Neighborhood Officer, Middle School Educational Resource Officer, Special Weapons and Tactics team, and the Drug and Gang Task Force Team. PO Wilson was drawn to the Canine Unit by the prospect of working with a K9 partner.

He was initially partnered with Ivan "The Delightful" in February 2007. K9 Ivan was purchased through the generous donation to Capital K9 by Mary Jane Ming. She passed away shortly after donating the money and did not get to meet Ivan, though some of her family members have.

He is currently working with a new partner "Boris" named after one of the board members of the Capital K9 nonprofit organization, Boris Frank. Boris was born on 10-08-12 and completed a four week handler course with Officer Wilson at Tarheel Kennels in Sanford, North Carolina.
