The mission of the K-9 Unit is to support all law enforcement activity and the community of Monroe County.  This support is a force multiplier which assists in the apprehension of fleeing criminals, warrant searches, building and area searches, search and rescue, pursuits, along with assisting patrol deputies with in-progress calls for service.  Aside from their law enforcement duties, the K-9 teams visit schools, churches and business to give demonstrations of their canines abilities and to educate and give the public a better understanding of what the team is utilized for.
