S.K.I.D.D.S. stands for SWAT & K9’s Interacting During Deployment School. K-9 Santo was a shining example of a true tactical canine hero. Santo has
received numerous awards and citations during his assignment to KCRS. K-9 Santo and his handler, Det. Miguel Rodriguez, to this day, remain one of the best K-9 Teams in KCRS history.
