Canine Unit

The Canine Unit was created in October 2001, by contributions from the citizens of the community. These contributions allowed the department to purchase a Belgium Malnois for the pilot program. The Canine unit works closely with drug and vice investigators and drug enforcement units to:

  • Assist with explosives detection
  • Drug searches
  • Perform article searches
  • Track missing persons or suspects

As of September 2009, the department has two K-9s on staff.
