All four canines are dual purpose tracking and narcotics detection police service dogs. Each canine is trained in handler protection, obedience, criminal apprehension, and tracking including evidentiary scent work. The narcotic odors they are trained to locate are marijuana, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, and their derivatives. The Sheriff’s canine teams have proven to be a valuable asset to their agency. The canines play an integral role in the agency’s criminal interdiction program; the canine teams assist in school searches for illegal drugs and regularly train with other adjacent county canine teams. The canine teams also assist other agencies as needed and are available to make public appearances.
