The K-9 unit is a specialized unit within the Patrol Division and is available to respond to any situation where a K-9 team will be beneficial.
Frequently people outside of law enforcement misunderstand how the dogs are actually used and deployed. The dogs are used in a variety of situations:
- Apprehend fleeing suspects
- Protect the handler and other officers
- Search for evidence
- Search for hidden suspects
- Search for lost persons
