The Patrol Division maintains a K-9 Unit which assists the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office and local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies on numerous incidents. The mission of the Patrol K-9 Unit is to provide support for deputies in the apprehension of felony suspects who are actively hiding, fleeing, or resisting arrest. Comprised of highly trained canines and their handlers, the unit conducts K-9 narcotics sniffs to assist deputies with locating illegal narcotics during traffic stops and search warrants. The Patrol K-9 are trained in criminal apprehension, tracking, building searches, on and off lead area searches, handler protection, and narcotics detection.
To maintain proficiency in the many tasks for which the Patrol K-9 teams are responsible, the unit trains as a group once a week, and the individual teams train daily. The K-9 teams are required to annually certify with an independent certifying organization to demonstrate proficiency in the teams’ required skills.
