Spokane Police Department K9 Unit

Spokane Police Department K9 Unit All of the SPD canines have been imported from European lineage. Documentation is provided for charitable tax donations upon request.

The Spokane Police Department K-9 Unit provides support to SPD members and other regional law enforcement agencies by safely and efficiently searching buildings and vehicles, apprehending suspects, tracking fleeing suspects, and protecting officers. The canines also provide support by finding evidence, searching for lost subjects that are in extreme danger, giving public demonstrations for civic e

vents and organizations, and teaching other law enforcement agencies basic and advanced K-9 skills and tactics. The K-9 unit has primarily had German Shepherd canines from Czechoslovakia and Germany, but also has Belgian Malinois canines from the Netherlands along with a German Shepherd imported from Hungary. In years past, several of the Spokane Police service canines were bred here in Spokane from previously imported Spokane Police service canines. The canines live at home with their Officer handlers and their families, and eventually go on to live with their handlers after they retire from service. Donations: The Spokane Police Department K-9 Unit relies heavily on donations to maintain the high standard of care that is required for dogs in the unit. Donations to the Spokane Police K-9 Unit go towards the care, maintenance, and training of the dogs. The Spokane Police K-9 Unit accepts donations for the purchase of dogs, equipment, and safety supplies. Please contact K-9 Sergeant Stephen Anderson by phone 509-951-3024 or email [email protected].

Dogs have a third eyelid that essentially acts as a windshield wiper to keep the eye free of mucus or debris. It produces 1/3rd of the dogs tears and helps to protect the cornea from injury. It’s not normally visible except during sleep.

Dogs have the ability to tell the difference between β€œnew” and β€œold” scent. This means that while tracking, they are able to easily figure out the direction of travel.
