Police Department back

K-9 Unit

The Lansing Police Department Canine Unit was formed in 1985 with three teams. Today we have ten working teams and is one of the largest Canine Unit Programs in the State of Michigan. Canines are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, assigned to every shift. Each K9 team is a locating tool, that is cross trained in utility work and scent work. Each canine is a German Shepherd, trained in obedience, tracking, handler protection, building searches, locating weapons and evidence. Each Canine Team is trained as either a Narcotic or Explosive Canine. LPD has five narcotic canines and five explosive dogs. In addition, two of the canines are Tactical Canines assigned to LPD's START Team. The LPD Canine Unit also performs Canine Demonstrations for the schools and public
