The Lorain Police K9 Unit consists of 4 uniformed patrol K9 handlers assigned to the Patrol Division. K9’s Garp, Scotty, Argo, and Titan are dual purpose K9’s that provide support to patrol officers in the performance of their duties. They also provide assistance to other local departments during critical incidents that can benefit from their capabilities. Their duties include deployment for alarms, buildings searches, article searches, narcotics sniffs, tracking fleeing suspects, and evidence location.
Our K9’s also provide our community with presentations and public appearances that demonstrate their uses and abilities.
