The Mason County Sheriff’s Office is has created a K-9 Unit to assist in the effort to combat crime in Mason County. The K-9 Unit is a valuable asset to the deputies and other law enforcement officers who are working diligently to protect the citizens of this County. The addition of a K-9 Unit to the Mason County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Division greatly enhances this agency’s capability to track down, locate and capture wanted offenders in rural and urban environments: and detect illegal narcotics in our communities and schools. The employment of K-9 assets greatly reduces the safety risk to the citizens and Law Enforcement Officers of Mason County, while increasing the agencies effectiveness in apprehending criminals and conserving the peace.
These assets serve as a locating tool to find suspects of serious crimes and aid in their capture and the detection of illegal narcotics. The K9 Unit is also instrumental in the safe, thorough search of buildings and other hazardous areas. The Unit assists in these searches and provides an added layer of protection for the law enforcement officers during these dangerous incidents.
