The K-9 Unit is a community orientated, professional police service.  These same fearless, hard working partners are among the most popular Police Department ambassadors to the public during gatherings and events. They serve the community by hosting K-9 demonstrations at civic events, schools, and other public venues.

No matter what type of community you live in, a K9 Unit can be an effective member of a police force.  Understand that the police working dog does not replace a patrol person — rather, it is an additional “tool” in the fight on crime.

The value of these canines to their department is immeasurable. The additional safety that they provide to the officers and public cannot be understated.

These dogs have the ability to search buildings, access small spaces, and provide protection for their handler and other officers in dangerous situations.
