Canine Division

Welcome to the Kure Beach Police Department Canine Division. Our department currently has one canine team. The canine handler must deal with a wide range of problems which test the officer’s patience and knowledge as a police officer and a canine handler. When using their assigned canine, the officer is expected to use common sense and exceptional judgement.

Our canine handler and police dog are well trained.

Our police dog Kilo is conditioned to do the following: 

  • Search for narcotics (Marijuana, Cocaine, Crack Cocaine, Heroin & Methamphetamine)
  • Track criminals and search for lost children, etc.
