To provide care and upkeep for the K-9 Unit at the Orland Police Department.
Police K-9s are some of the hardest working, most efficient, and most cost-effective officers on the beat. A Police K-9 performs 97% of its work with its nose and mere presence. However, a Police K-9 is much more. With community support, the Orland Police Department K-9 is used as an effective education and prevention tool for our youth. We use our K-9 partners in classrooms of the Orland Unified School District to promote drug awareness, firearm awareness and safety, as well as violence education and prevention. We work hand and hand, or hand in paw, with the community to promote success and bright futures for our children.
