The Coral Springs Police K-9 Unit is comprised of five K-9 Teams - each team consisting of a Sworn Officer and their Police Service Dog (PSD). The K-9 Unit falls under the direction of the Special Operations Component and assist Patrol in calls for service to include incidents involving armed suspects, in-progress felonies, building/area/article searches and tracking.
To ensure these valuable assets perform to the highest possible standards, K-9 Teams conduct weekly training and receive annual certifications through the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) and the North American Police Work Dog Association (NAPWDA).
The K-9 Unit also performs demonstrations for special events throughout Broward County and assists other law enforcement agencies when requested.
