V K9 SAR Unit responds to responsible agencies. Individuals or groups may give our number and information to an agency and the agency that has statutory responsibility for the search can dispatch us via telephone. At the search scene, V K9 SAR Unit reports to the Law Enforcement Incident Commander (IC) or responsible official and takes directions from him or his designee. VK9 Unit requires at least one or more Law Enforcement Officers be available during the duration of search activities.
VK9 SAR Unit is available for response, and can normally deploy within one hour of activation.
