Police Dog Certified
Gastonia Police Department's K-9 Unit started in 1990 and consists of six teams. All teams are trained to obtain the Police Dog I and II certifications through the United States Police Canine Association. These certifications mean national standards are met for police dogs in obedience and agility, hidden suspect searches and criminal apprehension.
