K-9

k9 unit

Implemented in 2009, our K-9 program is integral to enforcement operations and strengthens our abilities to respond to emergencies.

Each dog is trained in drug detection, patrol/tracking, deputy protection, building and area searches, and the apprehension of suspects.

Mojo has the drive to both work and play. His favorite thing is to play with his tennis balls and run. He has one of the keenest senses of smell his trainers have ever seen. Mojo is a dual purpose K-9 trained in drug detection and patrol/tracking. He joined the Davis County Sheriff's Office in June of 2009.

Dax is a Belgian Malionis. He was born in Neptune, New Jersey on February 17 2007. He was initially bred as a show dog and pre trained in Schutzhund (a type of training used to determine a dog's strong points). It was soon realized his work drive was too good to be a show dog and he needed to be out working in law enforcement. Dax has an amazing drive for law enforcement work and loves every minute of it. He joined the Davis County Sheriff's Office in June of 2009.

Handler: Deputy Claine Hawkins
Breed: Belgian Malinois
Weight: 85 lbs

Nitro is a large, strong dog that was bred in Germany and has a close bond with his handler. He likes to relax and play which could be attributed to the fact that he is only a pup of one year old. When it's time to work, though, he becomes very focused. Nitro is trained in drug detection and patrol/tracking. He has been with the Sheriff's Office since April of 2011.

Hasko is the newest addition to our K9 team and is showing promise of becoming a great K9 Deputy. He is a hard worker and learns quickly. We look forward to seeing him in action.
