Four of the K-9’s (“Spike”, “Yogy”, “Gunner”, and “Mason”) are trained in narcotic detection along with patrol work (searches). This addition has been a valuable asset to the department. The K-9 Unit is also available to work with our Crime Prevention Unit. This involves presentations in schools and special events. The fifth K-9 (“Ember”) is an accelerant detection K-9 which is utilized in suspected arson investigations.
