K-9 Maverick joins LTISD safety team


Meet the newest member of the LTISD safety team... Maverick. He is a nationally-certified, 15-month-old Belgian Malinois, and he is ready to go to work. Maverick will accompany LTISD School Resource Officer Lisa Lucas of the Travis County Sheriff's Office at each LTISD middle school and at Lake Travis High School for routine searches. Maverick will also play a role in educating students about safety and bullying prevention during visits to each LTISD elementary school.

For the past 12 years, Lake Travis had been the only school district in Travis County with a full-time, dedicated K-9 for school safety. The Eanes/Westlake district now has a dedicated school K-9 of its own.
