K9 Unit 

The department’s K9 Unit provides an invaluable service to the community, tracking missing persons, narcotics detection, apprehending suspects and locating evidence.

The K9 Unit allows patrol officers to work in a safer and more efficient manner and perform functions that human officers are simply unable to do.


For example, officers searching a building—without the benefit of a K9 team—will take much longer to perform the search (and will be exposed to greater risk). ​​​​​​​
