The Unit is comprised of nine K-9 teams. They are trained to locate suspects of crimes, lost persons, evidence recovery and some are trained for narcotic detection. The K-9s versatility makes them a valuable tool for the department. The unit continues to train at a vigorous and professional level. Training is conducted on a variety of situations so that we are prepared for the most basic to the more bizarre scenarios we may encounter. The entire unit adheres to the standards set forth by the United States Police Canine Association (U.S.P.C.A.) for Police Dog #1 (patrol work) and Police Dog #2 (tracking) Certifications.
