Officer Hansen and his K9 partner “Cash” & Officer Hernandez and his partner “Luna”
Both Teams recently graduated from their month long K9 Handler Patrol Course, and will begin working the streets in December 2016. Each K9 teams received training in the following:
· Area & building searches
· Handler protection & apprehension
· Article searches & tracking/trailing
· Narcotic detection.
After the K9 Patrol course both the handler and their K9 partner were certified by an evaluator prior to work in the field.
The Santa Cruz Police K9 Unit has had a long successful history in enhancing our police services. Our K9 Unit is primarily used for locating people, contraband and apprehending criminal offenders.
Congratulations to K9’s Cash and Luna.
