K9 Handler


The City of Menasha Police Department is fortunate to two active K9's positions.  K9 handlers receive extensive training to meet National standards.  After receiving certification, each K9 goes through re-certification each year it is in service.  Our drug K9's also assist neighboring agencies when requested to do so.

It is the responsibility of each K9 handler to maintain the health and welfare of the K9 including proper nutrition, grooming, medical care, affection, and living conditions.  Each K9 lives with it's handler and is allowed to socialize in the handler's home.  In most cases, the K9 and handler are a pair for the entire career of the K9.  Please read below on our current K9's.
