The Troy Police Department K-9 Unit consists of three highly-trained, nationally-certified teams. A team is comprised of one dog and a police officer handler. The Department assigns each team a specially equipped patrol vehicle.
Dogs selected for K-9 duty are professionally bred German Shepherds. Each must pass an extensive veterinarian screening prior to being placed into service. In addition to regular patrol duties the teams track criminal suspects or lost persons, search buildings, locate evidence or lost articles, and detect narcotics.
