The Police Department deployes four canine/handler teams. During 2009, the Department added a bomb detecting canine to the Unit. The canine teams responded to over 600 calls per year, which leads to many apprehensions. They also participate in narcotic searches. Neighboring agencies requested the assistance of our canine teams throughout the past year. The canine unit participates in demonstrations at schools and civic events.
For more information about this Unit, please see our 2009 Annual Report.
