First of all, I would like to thank all of you for the service that you provide for your agency and community. As K-9 officers, your duties sometimes come FIRST, and the sacrifices that you and your families go through are generally not appreciated or understood--it’s just work.
During the course of your duties, you are asked to put yourself on the front line, either tracking dangerous felons, interdiction stops, or building searches.
There is one thing that is certain, we NEVER know what to expect.

In saying that, I challenge you as a K-9 team to take pride in performing your duties to the best of your abilities. Stay safe and always check 10-42.
Be sure to click on the events tab to see any upcoming training or certification dates. Also please send in your photos so we can post them on our website. Coming in the future we will be giving out awards at each certification in different areas of utilization. Please submit a brief summary and photo if you or one of your fellow officers has performed in an exceptional manner.
