The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office has two K9 officers, Sonny and Charlie. They assist us with:
Our K-9s have assisted in finding missing persons (a young autistic boy, suicidal, and mentally unstable individuals) and locating evidence (shell casings, weapons, narcotics, and drug paraphernalia).
K9 Sonny and K9 Charlie are highly trained and assist in training other K-9 units in Northwest Ohio. They also do many public demonstrations at events and venues like:
The K-9s are supported financially by fundraising. Items sold include K-9 calendars, challenge coins, clothing items, and poker chips.
Funds raised pay for vet visits, training items, and other incidentals for the units saving taxpayer money and providing articles that otherwise could not be purchased. Thank you for your continued support!
