CORE Officer Rob Sotelo with K9 Cali and CORE Officer Tabby Malik with K9 Charlie.


The UC Davis Police Department is proud to include our K9 Unit

Officer Malik is the handler to our K9, Officer Charlie, a Labrador mix and a rescue from the Davis area.

In 2022, Charlie was reassigned from Explosive Ordinance Disposal and article search, to the police department's Outreach unit. Charlie is a proud part of the Aggie community, represents the UC Davis Police Department at large campus and dignitary events, and enjoys every opportunity to meet new friends on campus and hand-out smiles, tail wags and love.

Charlie was certified in explosive detection and article searches, capable of detecting numerous different types of explosives and locate evidence left behind at a crime scene. Charlie also assisted the Yolo County Bomb Squad as needed.

If you spot them on campus, stop by and say hi!
