Kimmons Investigative Services Now Providing Explosive Detection Services

In our constant expansion of our client services, Kimmons Investigative Services is now providing K9 assisted explosive detection services. We are pleased to announce our association with Sergeant Ryan Flannely and his K9 partner Brix, a team with great experience and a long history of locating explosive materials.

The Flannely and Brix Explosive Detection Team

K9 Brix retired from his full-time responsibilities as an officer with the Spring ISD Police Department at a young age after suffering a leg injury that prevented him from performing all police duties that were required of him; however, it has not impacted any of his capabilities when it comes to explosive detection. During his active duty, K9 Brix conducted numerous assignments related to his explosive detection certification to include his recruitment by the United States Secret Service to assist in the Donald Trump Presidential Campaign Rally hosted in Montgomery County in January 2022.

His handler, Sergeant Ryan Flannelly, became a police officer in May 2014 and has proudly served the Spring Independent School District Police Department since May 2021. Prior to his career with the Spring ISD Police Department, Sergeant Flannelly was a police officer with the Klein ISD Police Department from 2015 to 2021. He served in a variety of roles such as campus officer, patrol officer, and he worked in the evidence room.

His first duty assignment was as an explosive K9 handler working with partner K9 Brix. Flannelly was promoted to Corporal in November 2022 and less than a year later promoted to Sergeant in October 2023.

Sergeant Flannelly is currently the K9 Sergeant assigned to K9 Max and supervises the East side and night shift. The Spring Independent School District consists of 43 schools with approximately 34,000 students.

Sergeant Flannelly holds an Advanced Peace Officer License with the State of Texas. He is a certified mental health officer, a TCOLE Basic Instructor, and is an ALERRT (Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training) Instructor. In his free time, Sergeant Flannelly likes to spend time with his K9 partners, Brix and Max, and loves to travel.

Effective in Many Roles and Venues

Explosive detection dogs (EDDs) are considered one of the most effective tools for detecting explosives. They are utilized in corporate office buildings, concert venues, churches, shipping hangers, event stadiums, transportation hubs and other facilities that have high traffic of incoming vehicles daily, including carrying cargo.
