Nowhere is the phrase ‘man’s best friend’ more evident than in the Durham Regional Police Service’s Canine Unit (K-9). Created in 1990, these well-trained dogs and their police handlers have successfully apprehended criminals, recovered missing persons, detected narcotics and explosives, and performed building and open ground searches throughout the region. With a compliment of eight Canine Handlers and eight police dogs, the Canine Unit is a highly visible and well-respected part of the service.
