Mechanicsburg K-9 Unit

The full time police K9 program was established in January of 2017

with the purchase of K9 Max.  Who will hit the streets by summer of

this year as long as his training and the handlers training is completed

and certification is achieved.  K9 Max is a dual purpose dog for

narcotics detection and patrol apprehension.  K9 Max will also be

trained in item searches as well as searches for subjects, whether

that be someone lost such as a child, elderly, mental illness, handicap or

subjects that have fled from law enforcement.  K9 Max and his handler

will be used throughout the county to assist other agencies, however, their

priority always maintained within the Village of Mechanicsburg.

Joining our K9 unit by donation in October 2018 is K9 Kato. K9 Kato is a Western

German line German Shepherd. His came to us from the Czech republic. K9 Kato

and his handler Officer Viol became road certified in Febuary of 2019.
