K9 Officer

Do you think that K9 police units are flat out cool? Perhaps someday you would like to be part of a K9 unit? The main objective for a K9 officer or handler is to search with her/his dog to find suspects or evidence that is linked to a particular crime scene. Since a dog's sense of smell is 10,000 times stronger than humans, the K9 dogs often lead their handlers to a relevant spot that it might have taken detectives hours to find. K9 units are also used to find missing persons, detect narcotics or explosive materials and to reinforce other police patrol in situations where the dog's physical prowess might prevent violence.
