K-9 Program

The Evansville Police Department K-9 program is a volunteer program. Officers are selected through a screening process to join this select group of officers. K-9 officers and their families understand that assignment to the unit involves commitment–caring for the dog and spending many hours away from home conducting training exercises. The Evansville Police Foundation ensures that our officers are able to receive K-9’s, which are an extremely valuable tool to Law Enforcement. By utilizing the exceptional scenting abilities the K-9 teams makes the job much safer for the officers in our community. Support the K-9 program and donate today!
