We currently have 4 German Shepherds on the Department. They serve as an invaluable tool for tracking criminal suspects and locating missing individuals. All 4 dogs are cross trained in criminal tracking and apprehension, and narcotics detection.
Our K-9 units are frequently called upon by our Department as well as other area departments. They participate in drug searches in area high schools, and numerous public relations demonstrations.
In addition to their regular duties, the K-9 officers and their handlers undergo intensive monthly training sessions.
