The Lawrenceburg Police Department takes great pride in its K-9 Unit because of the proficiency, ability and utility of the animals working in partnership with their handlers. In 2005, our K-9 Teams answered and handled over 700 calls for service. These calls ranged from conducting public demonstrations at schools and nursing homes, to tracking dangerous armed suspects that had robbed and assaulted community members. Many times our teams are called upon to assist other neighboring Local, State and Federal Law Enforcement Agencies, through mutual aid. We are able to in effect improve the response to incidents, while increasing the capability and proficiency of each various requesting agency with the extension of our dogs.
