Law Enforcement Appreciation Week: Uniformed Officers

For day 2 of our Law Enforcement Appreciation week, we’d like to highlight our appreciation for Uniformed Officers. Here’s a brief overview of what the daily life and responsibilities look like for Uniformed Officers: 

Uniformed Officers have responsibilities such as maintaining regular patrols and responding to calls. These officers are of the utmost importance, especially when their job duties can include administering first aid to accident victims or investigating burglaries. Uniformed Officers can be the face of their community, as they are tasked with building relationships with residents of their local neighborhood. While on patrol, Officers attempt to become thoroughly familiar with their patrol area, the community, and remain alert for anything unusual. Hazards to public safety are investigated or noted, and officers are dispatched to individual calls for assistance. During their shift, they may engage with the community; enforce laws; or issue warnings or citations. 

After 2 to 4 years of experience, a Uniformed Officer can apply to become a K9 Police Officer. K9 Police officers usually work closely with Belgian Malinois, German Shepherds, and Dutch Shepherds, but can also work with Rottweilers, Doberman Pinschers, Bloodhounds, and even Beagles. It is important to note, that not every dog of these breeds are “built” to be K9s; all K9s are evaluated by trained staff, like the trainers at Custom Canine Unlimited, to determine whether or not they have the grit and temperament to be a K9 Police Dog.  

Some of the responsibilities of a K9 Police Officer are discovering illicit drugs, chemicals, or explosives, finding and rescuing individuals who are missing or have been kidnapped, tracking and apprehending fugitives fleeing from the law, discovering cadavers, locating evidence from crime scenes, inspecting vehicles, deterring criminals who otherwise may assault an officer, and identifying people who have or have been in contact with illegal drugs. K9 Officers and K9s themselves are tasked with being expected to show up, every day, in the face of the unknown.  

Quality K9 training is important to go along with the canine’s human counterpart. Uniformed Officers and K9 Police Officers in the making rely on the training they receive as well as the training the K9 receives itself. We personally know how important a decision it is where K9 Police Officers receive training and that’s why we strive to create the best learning environment possible. We know what we do can save lives, so we do everything we can to ensure a strong bond between K9 and handler. If our knowledge can help or save those in the line of duty, we are ready to help to the best of our abilities. 

Our appreciation of each Uniformed Officer, K9 Cop hopefuls, and K9 Sheriff Deputies spans far beyond what words can describe. We know that it takes a lot of courage to get up every day and get to work with no guarantee of what your day may hold. We feel confident when we train our K9 handlers and their K9s that they’re being offered the best in the industry to those who need it most. 

Thank you for being a proactive part of the good in our communities and thank you for the risk and sacrifice you make every day to keep us safe. We can’t say enough – Thank you for your service! For our Officers – we are offering 5 days of FREE BOARDING for all Law Enforcement if you book your boarding today (1/10/21).
