There are nine K9 teams currently assigned to the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office. Canines provide invaluable support to public safety through their highly specialized training and unique ability to locate narcotics, explosive devices and fugitives. They help their human partners with the apprehension of suspects who attempt to evade arrest by concealing themselves, or who pose a threat to the deputy or members of the public.
