Officer Scott Wilberger - Loki

My name is Scott Wilberger and my partner is Loki, a purebred German Shepherd.


I began my law enforcement career as a Correctional Officer with the Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Office in 2004.  I joined the Unified Police Department in 2010 and have worked as a patrol officer in Kearns, Magna and Midvale.  I joined the UPD SWAT Team in 2012.  This gave me the solid tactical foundation that I needed to become a successful K9 handler.


Loki and I are the senior members of the UPD K9 unit, joining the team in September 2013.  Loki was born in March 2012, and hails from Frankfurt Germany.  He has a large head, a beautiful sable coat, and has become an integral part of my personal life.  Loki was Utah POST certified as a “dual” purpose Police Service Dog in April 2014.  We have been responsible for taking numerous violent felons of the streets, as well as countless drug related arrests/narcotics seizures.  We have won numerous awards at the state and national level K9 competitions.


In the time that he has been my partner, Loki has become a beloved member of my family.  I am confident we will continue to enjoy a long and successful career together.
