K9 Unit

  • About the K-9 Unit
    The K-9 unit's primary function is to support the officers in the schools. Utilizing highly-trained police dogs assists the officers in maintaining a safe environment on school campuses. These dogs are trained to detect dangerous and illegal items as well as locating endangered or at-risk missing children. They also perform demonstrations and classroom presentations, "speaking" on subjects such as bullying and drug prevention. The K-9s even integrate into the classroom curriculum in areas such as pre-law and pre-vet programs!

    These dogs have been proven effective in bridging the gap between law enforcement and children, opening up the lines of communication where a child might not normally feel comfortable approaching or speaking with a police officer. After all, who could resist the friendly wag of a dog's tail?
