Our unit consists of one Sergeant, eight Officers and their beloved K9 Partners. Every handler has a working dog that is both Patrol and Narcotics certified through FDLE and the United States Police Canine Association (USPCA). The K-9 Unit has repeatedly won the four-man team overall competition in the Regional and National level.
The patrol vehicles are specially fitted for K-9 use as the backseat area is a platform with an area big enough for a K-9 to move around. The vehicle is also equipped with temperature sensors that create alarms to notify the handler if the vehicle temperature reaches an unsafe point for the K-9.
