K-9 Unit

Fayetteville Police Department K-9 Unit

The Fayetteville Police Department K-9 Unit is comprised of two K-9 teams, which are assigned to the Patrol Division.  Each K-9 team consists of a veteran patrol officer and their canine partners.  



The K-9 teams were created to assist police personnel to track suspects, search for articles or evidence of a crime, conduct building searches, assist in the arrest or apprehension of felons, search for lost persons, and detect the presence of narcotics.  The Fayetteville Police Department K-9 teams are nationally certified through the National Narcotic Detector Dog Association (NNDDA) in the detection of cocaine, methamphetamine, marijuana and heroin.  They are also certified in obedience and handler protection.  The K-9 teams service to the community and their fellow officers has proven to be invaluable.
