The Precinct One Constables Office Patrol Division currently has two certified K-9 units and certified handlers. IRIS is a multi-purpose Patrol/Narcotics detection K9 and BUZZ is a single purpose narcotics detection K9.
The Precinct One Constables Office K9s are trained in obedience, tracking, narcotics detection and suspect apprehension. After the completion of the basic handler course, each K-9 team is required to complete 16 hours of training monthly to maintain their certification.
With the expansion of the Constable’s Office Patrol Division, along with the success of utilizing K-9 units in various aspects of law enforcement, more K-9 units are anticipated to join the ranks of Iris and Buzz in the near future.
