The mission of the Oregon City Police Department K9 Unit is to provide specialized support to the Patrol and Investigative branches of the department. The Unit provides a resource to the officer and investigator on the street by utilizing the keen sense of smell and hearing of the canine whose task is to assist in the apprehension of suspects, the searching of buildings, finding articles of evidence, and protection of police officers and members of the community.
A K9 team is used whenever possible to augment officer resources by using specialized canine abilities. K9 teams respond to assist patrol and investigative operations on a city-wide basis, seven days a week, 24 hours a day. K9 teams also assist with emergency calls for service.
