K-9 Unit

The K-9 Unit consists of two Handler/Dog teams. The K-9 Units support officers in the field by searching for drugs and tracking for wanted or missing persons.

The K-9 Units also conduct demonstrations for schools and civic organizations to help educate and deter and prevent drug use.

Officers who volunteer for K-9 duty train regularly and care for the dogs themselves.
