Law Enforcement

Canine Unit

The Warren County Sheriff’s Office Canine Unit was established in 1982 and currently has two teams that serve the citizens and law enforcement community in Warren County and throughout the region. Canine teams must pass a certification every year after their initial basic school.   

Canine teams work regular uniform patrol and respond to a variety of calls such as: burglaries, building searches, article searches, suspect tracking, area and building searches for suspects, narcotics, and officer-safety assists. Canine officers may also assist on other calls for service, but they try to stay available for calls where their dog may be deployed.  The teams participate in many civic functions and educational demonstrations throughout the year.

All canines go home with their human partners where the dogs can be exposed to a more social atmosphere with the officer and his/her family.
