Our K-9 Unit currently has four teams of handlers with four dogs — Koi, Chuy, Rocky, and Judge — that are highly skilled and trained to supplement police operations and locate and apprehend criminal offenders. The unit maintains 16 hours of training per month that includes obedience, suspect apprehension, tracking, and narcotics detection.
Port Arthur Police K-9 Detail provides informative talks and K-9 demonstrations to schools, clubs, and professional organizations about the functions of police canines and how they are able to assist law enforcement officers to perform their job more effectively. The K-9 Detail also gives short demonstrations which allow participants to view first-hand how the police canine works. These demonstrations help dispel any false impressions the public may have about police K-9’s as well as increase and improve police community relations.
