K-9 Unit

Officer Steve Black K-9 (PACO) - Officer Garrett Martin K-9 (ISIS)

   

Utilization of properly trained dogs represents a highly cost efficient police tool. This is accomplished by using the canine's acute olfactory and hearing sense. The K-9 is utilized in building and area searches for items and persons, tracking of criminal suspects and lost persons, narcotic searches, assisting outside law enforcement agencies with approved requests and other functions consistent with the Department policies and procedures.

The Canine Team employs two German Shepherd dogs,  (PACO) who’s handler is Officer Steve Black  and (IZZY) whose handler is Officer Garrett Martin.
