K-9 Demonstration

K-9 Unit

The Purdue University Police Department uses certified drug dogs and a certified explosives dog as part of the overall strategy to provide a safe University environment. The drug and explosives dogs are considered dual-purpose dogs, trained in their specific scent detection area as well as suspect apprehension. The Purdue University Police Department’s K-9 program is designed to be a multi-functional program, combining the latest in K-9 policing techniques with crime prevention programming. The K-9s and their handlers are available for demonstrations upon request.
