K-9 Unit

The Plant City Police Department's K-9 Unit consists of German Shepherd dogs. Their superior sense of smell and hearing result in both time savings and higher rates of arrest. The dogs are trained for:
  • Obedience
  • Handler protection
  • Tracking
  • Building searches
  • Detection of narcotics
Thanks to the kind donations of Plant City citizens and the VFW, we currently have 3 bullet proof vests for our dogs These are invaluable in the protection of our dogs when it is necessary to send them into a situation involving firearms.
