The K-9 Services Unit currently consist of dual purpose K-9s that assist all divisions of the Clarksville Police Department. The K-9s are trained to find narcotics, locate missing persons, find articles related to burglaries or other crimes and physical apprehension of suspects who represent a danger to the public or officers.
New Changes for the Unit
All the K-9s have attended the six week training course at Southern Police Canine Inc., in North Carolina. After returning from school the K-9s are utilized for car searches, house searches, tracking and warrant service.
We would be remiss if we did not take a minute and thank the handlers and K-9s who came before us and provided a solid foundation for the unit on which to build.
