Our #InsideFCPD K9 Unit focus today is a bittersweet one: K9 Max, a 9 1/2-year-old German Shepherd from the Czech Republic, is being retired from police work as his handler was promoted out of the K9 Unit. K9 Max joined the FCPD in 2012 and had a distinguished career serving as one of the SWAT K9’s, where he was a valuable asset to the team. 🐕 K9 Max doesn’t get to slack in his retired days at home, though, as he has to keep watch over his little sister Luna!

K9 Max, thank you for eight years of dedicated service to the FCPD! 💙

02/17/2020

In 2020, there have been five fatal pedestrian crashes in Fairfax County to date. The best way to stay safe as a pedestrian and a driver is to make sure you can see your surroundings and that you are being seen by those around you!

For pedestrians 🚶‍♂‍, be sure to walk on sidewalks whenever possible, but if there are none available, walk facing traffic and as far away from cars as possible. The best place to cross a street is at a crosswalk, so always seek one out and use it if it’s available. Never assume that a driver can see you; making eye contact with a driver or waiting for a hand signal before crossing a street is a great way to make sure you and they are on the same page! 👋

Drivers 🚗, make sure you always have your headlights on at night and windshield wipers on when the weather necessitates it ☔💡. Stay vigilant of pedestrians during all hours of the day, and don’t take turns too quickly in case someone is crossing a street where you aren’t able to see them.

Stay safe, Fairfax County!

For today’s #InsideFCPD K9 feature, we’re looking at K9 Vaden, who has been with the FCPD since 2018. 🐕🐾 K9 Vaden is a three-year-old Belgian Malinois from the great state of Texas! He’s one of only two of our patrol dogs that was born stateside. Like K9 Logan, K9 Vaden has a strong desire to search out toys on athletic fields and school playgrounds after hours, but his preference is lacrosse or tennis balls over water bottles. Maybe one day when he retires from police work, he can line up a cushy job attending lacrosse practice at a high school! 😂

Thank you, K9 Vaden, for all you do for Fairfax County! 💙

For today’s #InsideFCPD feature we’re focusing on K9 Logan, a four-year-old Belgian Malinois from Hungary who has been with the FCPD since 2017! 🐕 Logan is a high energy dog with a curious quirk: He loves playing with empty water bottles! Logan’s handler will often take him to the county athletic fields to exercise and Logan will sprint onto the field and go hunting for water bottles inevitably left behind. He’ll run around with one in his mouth until he finds another, then drop the first to play with the second. He’ll keep playing this game with himself until playtime is over! 🐾

Thank you, K9 Logan, for all you do for Fairfax County! 💙

02/03/2020

#InsideFCPD: This month we are looking at the work of our K9 Unit. The FCPD K9 unit is comprised of one 2nd Lieutenant, two Sergeants, and twelve officers, all of whom are handlers of 15 patrol/narcotic detection dogs and three bloodhounds.

The K9 Unit’s patrol dogs primarily come from Europe, as do many police K9s in the eastern portion of the United States. The dogs will usually range in age from 11 to 16 months when purchased and already have a bit of training. Once purchased, the dog is assigned to a specific handler. The dogs become part of the handler’s family and reside at their home. The team has no preference of specific working dog breeds, with German Shepherds, Belgian Malinois, Dutch Shepherds, and dogs with crossed bloodlines all being a part of the team. They look for dogs that are social around people, confident in their surroundings, and aggressive when the need arises.

The patrol dogs are deployed most often to track and apprehend suspects after they have fled the area on foot. In addition to tracking and apprehension, the dogs can locate discarded evidence or drugs in high grass or thick vegetation. All the patrol dogs are also cross trained to detect narcotics. If, during a traffic stop, officers believe a vehicle may be harboring illegal drugs, they will request a patrol dog to conduct an exterior sniff around the car.

Bloodhounds are primarily used to locate critically missing persons but occasionally will be used on criminal cases, usually beyond the capability of the patrol dogs. The bloodhound’s sense of smell is stronger than the patrol dogs, so they can be used hours or even days after a person goes missing.

As one can see, the greatest asset the dogs bring to FCPD is their ability to smell, be it to locate lost items, drugs, or a criminal suspect! Thank you to the K9 Unit for all they do to keep Fairfax County safe!
