The primary function of the Canine Unit is to help the in searching for and tracking of felony suspects who have fled the scene of a crime, searching for evidence, narcotics detection and occasionally, to conduct searches for lost children and/or elderly people.
All the handlers in the Canine Unit enjoy working with the public and frequently conduct demonstrations. The handlers enjoy meeting the public and answering questions concerning the unit and canines in general. The canines enjoy all the attention they get from the children who attend the demonstrations.
If you are interested in arranging a canine demonstration for your group, please email Sgt Rood
to make your request.
Brad Moody Memorial Fund
On October 4, 2008 K-9 Handler Brad Moody was involved in a collision which ended his watch. Brad will be sorely missed among his family, friends, co-workers, and especially his peers in the K-9 Corps. Brad’s partner, Rico, lived with Brad’s family until he passed in 2010.
A fund to benefit the Moody family has been established at Mechanics Bank. Donations may be made to the “The Memorial Fund for Officer Brad Moody” and dropped off at any Mechanics Bank location. Visit the Brad Moody Memorial webpage
