The Bossier City Police Police Department's K-9 Unit provides back-up support and other assistance to the uniformed patrol division when responding to calls for service and calls of crimes in progress. When called upon to do so, K-9 teams can be utilized to conduct searches of buildings, residences, neighborhoods or other areas for suspects or missing persons. The unit is also a valuable tool in detecting illegal narcotics. The unit can be deployed to lend its specialized search skills to the police department's other specialized units during high risk search and arrest warrant executions.
The unit consists of five K-9 teams.
