Sheriff's Office

K-9 Unit

The mission of the canine unit of the Chelan County Sheriff's Office is to assist the patrol units, other Sheriff's Office units and outside government agencies by maintaining and utilizing appropriately trained police dogs to enforce laws, keep order, and assist the community. These dogs are trained to locate and apprehend wanted criminals, to protect law enforcement personnel and citizens, to locate evidence, bomb devices, gun powder, illegal drugs, lost persons, and to locate and recover lost property.

Maintaining a police K-9 program is a very costly venture, more than the budget of CCSO can sustain. A single police dog costs over $25,000.00 (per dog) to get on the road. This includes the initial cost of the dog, training out of the area and out of the state for both the dog and handler, modifying a police vehicle, and all of the handlers’ and dogs’ equipment needs. Without donations and its own annual fundraiser K9s & Wines held at Pybus Market, Chelan County Sheriff's Office would not be able to sustain a K9 team. Please consider donating to support your Chelan County Sheriff’s office K-9 Unit. https://www.co.chelan.wa.us/news/article/donation-fund
