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.

In April 2017, K-9 Unit Gunner retired after 7 years of distinguished service.  In his 7 years, he and his handler Curtis Hargett were responsible for the seizure of over $500,000 in drug money, 200 lbs. of marijuana, and 40 lbs. of meth.  Gunner also placed highly in several USPCA (United States Police Canine Association) competitions.  Everyone at the Sheriff's Office wishes him a happy and relaxing retirement.

Also in April of 2017 K-9 Unit Titan started his career with his handler Robert Smith.  He has completed all of his certifications, and has already proven to be an asset to the team.  We look forward Titan's having a long, illustrious career here at the Warren County Sheriff's Office as well.
