K9 Officers have served a valuable purpose in communities for decades. These highly trained K9's help officers do their jobs safer and faster, and in so many cases have been intrumental in saving lives. In a perfect world, every law enforcement officer would have a K9 partner. The bond between a K9 handler and their dog is stronger than anyone can imagine. These K9's are valued and honored by law enforcement and communities alike for the dedication, loyalty and safety that they provide.
To The Rescue
K9 Officers provide specialized skills, such as apprehension, detection and search and rescue and are extremely agile and fast. They are trained to bite dangerous suspects and hold them hostage until the suspect can be apprehended by officers. The dogs are often trained to detect various drugs, explosives, accelerants and other crime scene evidence. A large part of law enforcement work is searching for lost or missing persons. In the case of search and rescue, dogs can be trained to find living victims and the remains of deceased humans; the ability of dogs to cover large areas in a relatively short period of time is an invaluable resource.
