All K-9's and handlers are trained for tracking, area and building searches, handler protection, criminal apprehension and public relations. K-9 patrols work seven days per week, three shifts per day and are on call 24 hours per day. K-9 patrols respond to requests for assistance from outside police agencies as well as out-of-county agencies. Commonly these requests are made for assistance in apprehending a suspect, finding a missing person, locating narcotics, and detecting explosives. To receive a NYS certification every K-9 and handler must undergo a rigorous 6-month training period. K-9's and handlers are evaluated by a NYS certified instructor.
