The Chapel Hill Police Department Canine (K-9) Team has been in existence since 1990. All of the dogs are trained to detect the smell of narcotics and assist with searches for lost people and fleeing suspects.
The K-9 Team is certified by the United States Police Canine Association and the International Police Working Dog Association.
The Chapel Hill Police Department K-9’s are purchased through donations from community members and community groups. If you have questions about the program or about donations please call 919-968-2760.
