BORDENTOWN TOWNSHIP POLICE CANINE UNIT

caninebordentown.pngThe Bordentown Township Police Canine unit is currently comprised of four handlers and six canines. This unit provides our department with various specialties, including explosive (Bomb) detection, narcotics detection, tracking, trailing, criminal apprehension, handler protection, article searches, and field searches and building searches.  Our canine unit provides assistance on a daily basis to our officers and provides mutual aid for surrounding agencies. We also assist with community policing by providing canine demonstrations and lectures for various community organizations and at community events. We have several breeds of canine in our unit and the breeds vary based upon the desired specialty of each canine. We have three German Shepherds that are cross trained in detecting explosives or narcotics and canine patrol work (Tracking/Criminal Apprehension, etc.).  We have a Belgian Malinois Shepherd and Labrador retriever trained to detect narcotics odor and a Blood Hound trained to track human scent which is primarily used in searches for missing-endangered adults and children.

If any community group or organization would like to schedule a K9 demonstration please contact us to make arrangements.
