CCPD K-9 Unit

The Cañon City Police Department K-9 Unit was formed in 2014 and was funded 100% by donations through the incredible generosity of Cañon City residents and K-9 DukeK-9 supporters. 

K-9 Duke is a two and one half year old Belgian Malinois, and is certified in Patrol and Narcotics work.  K-9 Duke was purchased from Shallow Creek Kennels, located in Sharpsville, PA and became a member of the Cañon City Police Department on January 8th, 2015. 

Duke began his formal police training with the Colorado Springs Police Department (CSPD) in January 2015 and completed a 16 week (640 hours) K-9 Training Academy hosted by CSPD.  K-9 Duke and his handler will continue monthly training with CSPD and other local K-9 Units.

K-9 Duke enjoys playing with his dog friend Daisy, fetch, chewing his basketball and training with the CSPD K-9 Unit.  Duke excels at area searches, finding narcotics and locating felony suspects.
