Vigilant Canine Services ...

Vigilant Canine Services International, or VCSi, was founded by Buck Dikes, a Red Bluff native who served in the U.S. Marine Corps and retired from the Anderson Police Department nine years ago.

...
Back in 2005, Dikes was working for a defense contractor providing canine services in Baghdad when the company went bankrupt.
"Hmm, I need a job," Dikes, 45, remembers telling himself. So he accepted some of the company's assets in lieu of the pay that was owed him, and decided to go out on his own.
With corporate headquarters in Las Vegas, he founded VCSi in 2007 and serves as its CEO.
"It kind of exploded near the end of 2008 and continues to grow rapidly," he said.
...
Dikes attributes his success in part to the fact he's recruited heavily from law enforcement, including retired Shasta County Undersheriff Greg Wrigley as international operations manager. Dikes realized early on that police agencies were concerned about the quality of vendors.
...
The son of a retired Tehama County sheriff's deputy, Dikes said it only made sense to establish a base in his home territory. There's lots of competition in Southern California, but "really nothing north of Sacramento," he said.
Red Bluff Police Chief Paul Nanfito has known Dikes for years and is familiar with his track record.
...
"He's developed a program that's very user-friendly to law enforcement," Nanfito said of Dikes.
...
Tehama County Sheriff Dave Hencratt, who attended the police academy with Dikes in the 1980s and worked with his father, also likes having VCSi in the neighborhood.
...
I have known Dikes when he was with APD years ago and was a great handler. Glad he is here helping his community. Well deserved.....
...
Buck is a GREAT guy!! Miss him!!!
