The purpose of the K-9 program is to assist the patrol officers with routine calls, in addition to searches. The combination of the K-9s special training and their extraordinary sense of smell aids the officers in finding a person who is hiding from the police. The K-9 program is part of the Operations Division. It is a specialized assignment and the Officers and their partners are assigned to Patrol Shifts.

To develop a trusting relationship and to learn specialized police patrol techniques the officer and his dog first attend a four-week training school together. Upon their graduation the two begin to "work the streets" as partners.

The K-9 program is credited with saving countless work hours for the officers and making their work environment and our community safer.
