K9 Unit

The K9 Unit is part of the Avon Police Department’s Special Operations Division and consists of three officers and three police dogs. 

The handlers and their dogs are trained in the following areas:  

  • Tracking (human scent)
  • Building, article, evidence and area searches
  • Obedience
  • Handler protection
  • Criminal apprehension
  • Narcotics detection 
  • Community policing

The K9 Unit trains in these areas on a weekly basis so they can remain proficient in these special skills. If you would like any information on this unit or have a request for K9-related activity, please email the K9 Coordinator, Lieutenant Keith Haag
