Canine (K-9) Unit

The McFarland Police Department's Canine (K-9) Team consists of two trained officers and K-9 partners who are prepared and equipped to assist with critical incidents which go beyond the scope of normal police operations.  They also handle routine calls for service, assist with searching for suspects, assist officers with narcotics searches and are often called upon to do demonstrations.  Additionally, they also assist the school district with random searches for narcotics within the school campuses.
