Police K9 Unit

Training & Certification

Each K9 Team consists of a canine and its handler. Each team undergoes extensive training at the Police K-9 Academy to become certified in handler protection, suspect tracking and narcotics detection.

Properly trained K-9 teams can be used to search buildings and outside areas for people who may be lost or wanted by the police, search for evidence discarded by suspects, track a person's scent, search for narcotics / contraband and to apprehend fleeing suspects.
