K-9 Program

 

A human-canine officer team is a tried and true law enforcement tool. With their keen eyesight, speed and sense of smell, police dogs can perform some tasks faster and at lower cost than human officers with less risk to officers and the public. With this in mind, the Yuma County Detention Center established its first ever K-9 Unit in August 2001.

The mission of the K-9 Unit is to deter and detect the presence of narcotics in the Detention Center, which include Marijuana, Methamphetamine, Cocaine and Heroin. The K-9 Unit is also assigned to the Patrol Bureau. In addition, the K-9 Unit assists the Yuma County Narcotics Task Force with their mission to improve the quality of life for all residents of Yuma County.
