The Roseville Police Department K-9 Unit began in 1987 with two dogs. Our K-9 Teams are cross-trained in tracking, officer protection, and drug detection. Our K-9 Team training includes two training days a month, frequent training with K-9 teams from other jurisdictions and monthly training with our SWAT Team.
K-9 Officers are assigned to the Patrol Division and work a variety of shifts to ensure that their services are available to officers responding to calls for service in the City. Each K-9 Team is also on-call 24 hours a day to assist when the need arises. Currently, Department K-9 Teams are called on over 300 times per year for locating suspects, searching for drugs, searching buildings, and other uses.
