The Caddo County Sheriff's Office K9 Unit consists of 2 handlers 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.
