Kansas City Fed Law Enforcement Officer Mike Pofahl and K-9 officer Reese display the neckerchief and patch presented by the Girl Scouts of Nebraska.


Picture this: A K-9 becoming an honorary Girl Scout. That’s what happened in October with Reese, a law enforcement team member in the Bank’s Omaha Branch. Reese received the designation for her service to the community.

The recognition was part of Reese’s visit with students at Highland Elementary School in Omaha as part of a Girl Scouts of Nebraska after-school program. Reese’s handler, Officer Mike Pofahl, discussed the duties and responsibilities of a Law Enforcement K-9 while Reese demonstrated obedience and detection.

After the demonstration, a Girl Scout representative awarded Reese a “Spirit of Nebraska” patch and neckerchief, declaring her an honorary Girl Scout in recognition of her contribution to Girl Scouts of Nebraska’s after-school programs.

The programs are provided free of charge to support girls in underserved communities and help them achieve their goals in life. Following the October recognition, Reese participated in another after-school program presented by the Girl Scouts.
