Sergeant Chris Coffee, K-9 Unit Supervisor
The Scottsdale Police Departments K-9 Unit was formed in 1987 and currently has six police service dog teams. Each K-9 team consists of a sworn veteran officer and a certified dual-purpose police service dog.
The K-9 teams were created to assist police personnel to search for hidden suspects, locate articles or evidence of a crime, protect officers and the public from serious injury or death, assist in the arrest and apprehension of felons, and detect the presence of narcotics and/or explosives.
