The Polk County Sheriff’s Office K9 Unit is a valuable resource utilized by the Sheriff’s Office. The Sheriff’s Office currently has three Canine Teams. Each K9 Team provides coverage to support members of the Polk County Sheriff’s Office and is available to other federal, state and local law enforcement agencies within and outside of Polk County upon request.
Each team consists of an on-duty Deputy Sheriff and their canine partner. The K9 teams are trained on building/area searches, tracking, detection and handler protection.
Each K9 certifies yearly through the Heart of America Police Dog Association. K9 Dameon, Egon, and Midas live with their handler and are members of the handler's families. The K9 Unit trains monthly. The K9 Unit is also available to conduct public service canine demonstrations upon request.
