K-9 Unit

The Warren County Sheriff’s Department K-9 Unit’s primary role is that of supporting the Patrol and Criminal Investigation Divisions.

In addition to regular patrol, canine deputies conduct high-yield drug searches, play a vital role in tactical apprehension, suspect threat and control, in crime scene reconstructions, and are successful in tracking perpetrators, rescuing victims and locating missing persons.

In this unit, the canine and the deputy work together as a heroic team to preserve the security of our community. The animal is a valuable member of the Warren County Sheriff’s Office team, and is regarded as such.

Deputy Curtis Hargett and K-9 "Gunner" placed third in the region in 2012 for narcotics detection at the United State Police Canine Association regional competitions held in Cookeville, Tennessee.  Deputy Hargett and K-9 "Gunner" will also represent this region at the USPCA national competition held in Hammond, Louisiana June, 2013.
