K-9 Unit

Our K-9 handlers and their K-9 partners work hard every day to ensure training and execution of the job is second to none.  Our K-9s have not only assisted other agencies in Ashtabula County, but have assisted agencies in neighboring counties as well. The K-9 Unit is trained to conduct building searches, article searches and perform tracks, among other things. 

Donations to our K-9 Unit are always welcomed and appreciated as we receive no separate funding for this unit.

Donations can be made to:
