Prior to certification with NAPCH and K-9 ATF, Our K-9 officers are required to complete a four-month training academy with their canine partners. The teams are required to pass an extensive certification course as part of this training. The canine teams continue to train weekly to maintain their skills. Weekly training consists of life-like scenarios that officers may come across while on patrol.
Our K-9 teams are available for public demonstrations with schools, churches, or other community groups. If you have any questions about the canine program or would like to request a demonstration please contact Deputy Chief Rich Kummert at 734-467-3529.
