The Caddo County Sheriff's Office K9 Unit consists of 1 handler and dogs trained to ensure the safety of the handler and the citizens of the county. Because of the dog's superior sense of smell, hearing, and physical capabilities, the trained law enforcement K9 is a valuable supplement to law enforcement.
Each handler and their dog are subject to intense training before being assigned to Patrol. Upon entry into the unit, each handler must complete an extensive course with their K9. To request a handler and K9 for your school or event, call (405) 247-6666 or email us.
The Caddo County Sheriff's Office would like to welcome our newest K-9 team. K-9 Supervisor Eddie Ramsey and K-9 Simba, a 2-year-old Belgian Malinois certified together in April of 2023 after Deputy Ramsey attended the Torchlight K-9 School in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where Simba was trained. Simba was born in Germany and is certified in narcotics detection, tracking, and criminal apprehension. Simba enjoys lying in the sun and playing fetch. Simba is off to an awesome start in his new career with several narcotics arrests.
Deputy Ramsey, who supervises the K-9 program, previously handled K-9 Athena, who retired in March 2023. He is excited to start this new journey with K-9 Simba and serve the citizens of Caddo County.
The Caddo County Sheriff's Office K9 Unit runs and operates solely on donations. K9s are purchased through fundraisers and donations from Businesses, Tribal Governments, and Citizens of Caddo County. The Caddo County Sheriff's Office is very fortunate to have its veterinary bills covered at no cost to the Sheriff's Office by the Anadarko Veterinary Clinic in Anadarko, OK.
The K9 Unit attempts to do fundraisers and/or looks for donations to keep the unit running. Some of the K9 unit costs include food, toys, and vehicles outfitted with heat alarms for K9s. Currently, our K9 Units are 2012 Chevy Tahoes that were purchased pre-owned from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol with over 100,000 miles on them.
The Caddo County K9 Unit is utilized in the Caddo County Public System and the day-to-day operations and needs of Caddo County. K9s have been requested and responded to assist other counties and agencies for narcotics detection and criminals' apprehension.
