Overview of the Unit
The Blue Springs Police Department introduced its first K-9 Unit in September of 2006. A grant from the Federal Government covered cost of training for the dog and handler.
The K-9 unit participates in building searches and in many cases, K-9s are able to go into places that are dangerous for the officer. Using their keen sense of smell, eyesight, and hearing, dogs are more effective in these roles than a human. The K-9s have undergone rigorous training. As a result, both are able to locate suspects who run from the scene of a crime.
