Patrol Responsibilities

Patrol Teams are used for a variety of reasons to include: building searches, area searches, evidence searches, tracking for missing/lost/escaped subjects, and protection. These canines are highly trained and are able to respond to a wide variety of incidents with the primary objective being to protect the "human" officer and citizens.

Public Demonstractions

The K-9 Unit also performs public demonstrations, upon request, of the canines abilities. These demonstrations are not only for entertainment but to also provide positive community relations between the Police and the Public which we serve. If you are interested in a demonstration, you can contact Lt. Chad Fetzer at Cfetzer@bismarcknd.gov.
