K9 Unit

Begun in 1979 with one handler and one police service dog, the K9 Unit is highly specialized and offers city-wide coverage to officers involved in high-risk situations including building searches, suspect apprehension, and missing persons. Consisting of three K9 teams, the K9 Unit stands at the ready to support operations when called.

The Arlington Police Foundation has supported the K9 Unit financially for many years through the generosity of its donors. Donor support through the foundation allowed the police department to replace 2 of our K9 officers.
