BLM welcomes law enforcement canine

The BLM California Desert District welcomes Police Canine Hoost to its Law Enforcement Program.  Hoost has teamed up with BLM Ranger Chris Rice from the Palm Springs-South Coast Field Office this summer and together they have made public lands safer.  In the last month, Hoost assisted Ranger Rice in several incidents, including two involving stolen firearms and illegal narcotics (methamphetamine).  Thanks to Hoost, Ranger Rice was able to arrest the suspects and help keep public lands safe!  Thanks Hoost!
