The year 2019 was an outstanding year for the Haywood County Sheriff’s K9 unit.
The unit has continued to get stronger with more than 1,000 hours of training. It has also continued to grow, as we added another single purpose K9 to our unit. This year our K9 unit stopped 372 vehicles, searched 248 vehicles, conducted 25 tracks and answered 3072 calls for service.
This year our K9 numbers continued to increase in the way of drug seizures. During their deployments, the K9s located 525.25 grams of methamphetamine, 135 grams of marijuana and 15.25 grams of heroin.
We look forward to continuing this hard work throughout 2020.
