K-9 Unit

Under the new Administration, three K-9 teams were added to the force. Two teams are patrol teams consisting of a Sheriff’s Officer and a Police Dog each. These two teams will be used for routine patrol such as building searches, property checks, field and open searches, wooded area searches, article searches, tracking, and criminal apprehension. The third team is a Canine Specialty team consisting of a Sheriff’s Officer handler and a specialty dog which will be used specifically for tracking. This specialty dog, which currently is a Bloodhound, has been selected to represent and promote the program called Project Lifesaver.
