K9 Unit

In August 2019, the newest addition to our K9 program was K9 Zoe and her handler, Sgt. Aaron Bales. The pair passed their Oregon Police Canine Association (OPCA) certification test to become a Certified Narcotic Detection Team.  K9 Zoe is a five-year-old Belgian Malinois trained to detect the odor of Methamphetamine, Heroin and Cocaine. She was acquired from the State of Jefferson Working Dogs in Gold Hill, Oregon. K9 Zoe and Officer Bales completed several weeks of training prior to taking their OPCA certification test.  K9 Zoe and Sgt. Bales are assigned to the Patrol Division.
