K-9 Unit

The Placer County Sheriff's Department fields a total of fifteen (15) police canines and their handlers throughout the county. They are deployed in the Field Operations Division on Patrol, the Corrections Division working in the Main Jail and our North Lake Tahoe Division. The teams specialize in locating, controlling and apprehending criminal suspects, crowd control, locating missing persons, narcotics detection and handler protection.

Law Enforcement canine units can save literally hundreds of man hours yearly searching in a variety of suspicious and high-risk situations, vehicle pursuits, barricaded suspects and lost or missing person cases.
Because of their extraordinary senses of hearing and smell, our canines can search the same locations in a fraction of the time their two legged partners can. These abilities alone free Deputies for more patrol time and community policing duties.

Loyal partners, canines not only help protect law enforcement personnel and the community, but they allow us a unique opportunity to connect with the public, and present the positive side of law enforcement!
