On August 23rd, the Tullahoma High School and Middle School tennis teams donated old tennis balls and new toys to Tullahoma K-9 Storm.

High School tennis coach Ashley Abraham and players gathered two large boxes of tennis balls to donate for training purposes for Storm.

Derek Bowles is the K-9 handler for the Tullahoma Police Department. Abraham states, “He was kind enough to show us a detection demo with Storm beside the Tullahoma High School tennis courts. The players loved it!” Storm is a 5-year-old Belgian Malinois imported from the Netherlands. Bowles explains, “He is trained in narcotics detection, handler protection, apprehension tracking, building searches for suspects, article searches, and off-leash obedience. He’s assisted with several arrests and has been utilized in narcotics seizures on numerous occasions”. 

Storm placed first in the regional OnPoint K-9 police canine seminar and competition in March 2023. This seminar consisted of fifty K-9 teams throughout the southeast and Midwest regions. Storm has additional narcotics awards, placing 2nd on two occasions (2021 & 2023) in the Randy Hare narcotics detection scramble at the OnPoint K-9 police canine seminar and competition.

Storm and Bowels have patrol and narcotics certifications through the National Narcotic Detector Dog Association and American Working Dog.

Storm has been involved in more than 100 arrests and is responsible for several pounds in combined narcotics seizures throughout his career thus far.

Storm and Derek have been certified as a police service dog team since December 2019. Storm resides with Bowles and his family.
