K-9 Unit

The Operations Division has dual-purpose German Shepherds assigned to each shift. Our K-9 Officers play a critical role in keeping the City safe. 

K-9 teams are used for a wide array of tasks, which include drug and explosive detection, locating fleeing suspects and missing persons, as well as crime scene evidence and missing articles.
K-9 teams respond to assist Field and CID operations on a city-wide basis, seven days a week, 24 hours a day. They also assist with emergency calls for service, including “officer needs help”, “assistance” or “back-up” calls.

The K-9 Unit is assigned to the Field Operations Division, and as such is deployed at the direction of the Division Commander.
