K-9

The Sheriff recognizes that conducting an effective investigation of criminal offenses often requires the use of specialized tools and techniques. Because of the canines’ superior sense of smell and hearing, these k-9’s are an invaluable enhancement to the routine patrol activities and in assisting with specialized police investigations. The Macomb County Sheriff Office is proud of the services our canine teams provide to our community. Each team being a dog and handler. All seven dogs are German Shepherd breed. Their training consists of tracking, apprehension, article searches (evidence recovery), handler protection and building/area searches. Each dog is also cross trained in either narcotics detection or explosives detection.

Currently, there are seven (7) k-9’s in service with the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office. Teams are assigned to all three shifts.
