Our Detection Dogs

We partner with Sector K9 and animal shelters across the country to select “pit bull” dogs who have what it takes to be a police detection K9.  We sponsor the training and care for the dogs while they and their police officer partners are expertly trained at Sector K9 at no cost to taxpayers.

From there, the K9 teams work within their communities, often in school systems, to create safe environments for every citizen.

“[The program] benefits the community a great deal by impacting young kids and bringing them closer to the police department as a whole with the help of K9 Athena’s presence. Hopefully, after they meet Athena, they walk away with a better outlook on police officers.” Office Jody Bullard
