K-9 Unit

The MCSO's award-winning K9 Unit consists of three K9 partners and a commander, who assist other agencies with bomb and narcotics detection, suspect tracking, patrol, warrants sweeps and finding missing children. The K9s receive months of training overseas before being shipped to the United States and matched with their handlers. After being matched, the partners spend weeks on initial training and continually train for agility, apprehension, tracking, obedience, and search.
