The Zachary Police Department (ZPD) K-9 Unit was established in order to provide the department with an additional tool to detect and locate narcotics, assist in suspect apprehension, track individuals, perform building and area searches, locate evidence and provide officer safety. Utilization of Canines requires adherence to procedures that properly control their use of force potential and channels their specialized capabilities into legally acceptable crime prevention and control activities. Canine Teams must demonstrate compliance with recognized standards in training and certification to minimize or eliminate the civil liabilities inherent with the deployment and utilization of police canines.
