K9 Unit

The Concord Police Department Canine Unit serves the department and community in several different areas. Each patrol rotation is assigned a Canine unit that works to assist patrol. The unit also performs several hundred public demonstrations throughout the year.

Our Canine Unit currently has three canine teams.  A new canine team is placed into a 12-week training program here in Concord. The new handler goes through over 40 hours of classroom training, in addition to the many field-training hours. Once the training is complete, the new canine unit must pass a certification test before being released to patrol duties.

All canines are trained and tested in obedience, aggression control, tracking, building search, area search and narcotics detection. Each canine is assigned to one officer and stays with that officer throughout his career. When a canine retires, the officer/handler usually keeps the canine.
