He used to run on Notre Dame football special teams but now he trains K9 dogs that will help keep Michiana residents safe.
Former player Joe Brockington was in town today, touring the Notre Dame Stadium where he once played.
Once Brockington's dogs have been taught basic obedience skills, they move on to law enforcement agencies for further training.
One of his dogs --Bishop-- has been training to become the newest member of the Lakeville Police Department.
Bishop graduates next Friday.
“Bishop is going to be an excellent dog for the Lakeville Police Department as well as for St. Joe County in general, for the southern half of St. Joe County. Right now we're working on developing a good working relationship with Laville High School and the elementary school as well,” said Lakeville Police Department Chief Patrick Howard.
Not all of Brockington's dogs work in law enforcement and some of them go on to compete in sports, become family pets, or personal protection dogs.
