Police Services Division, Special Operations, K-9 Unit
the benefits and special capabilities of a trained service dog, the
division enlists the help of two K-9's. K-9 Bady, a Dutch Shepherd, is Officer Kimbley's partner. K-9 Andor, a Belgian Malinois, is Officer Madigan's partner. Both K-9 teams are trained in narcotics detection, tracking and control. Generally,
the K-9 officers have the same duties and responsibilities as any other officer;
but, because of their K-9 partners, their capabilities are significantly enhanced.
Additional duties include conducting building intrusion searches, searching for illegal narcotics and/or contraband, conducting suspect and/or evidence searches, conducting preventative burglary and robbery patrols. K-9 officers and their partners will also visit schools, clubs, businesses, etc. to provide information and demonstrations about the K-9 Unit.
