The Klamath Falls Police Department Canine Unit consists of two patrol canines and one two narcotics canines. Once the canines are selected, the officer will attend a four to six week handler's course to be trained and bond with their new partner.
The canines are trained in Dutch and Czechoslovakian commands. The patrol canines are trained in tracking, article search, building search, area search and handler/canine protection. The narcotics canines are trained to locate Cocaine, Heroin and Methamphetamine.
All four canines were purchased by generous donations from our community.
