K-9 Unit

Rowan University is committed in providing it's students,faculty and quests with different professional Police services. Recently the University has started a Police K-9 unit. The unit consists of two fully certified Police K-9 handlers and two certified K-9's. The two German Shepard's are both trained in explosive detection and crossed trained in patrol work. Both K-9's are capable of detecting over 20 explosive compounds and can also perform valuable services such as article(s) retrieval, tracking lost person(s) or suspect(s) and can perform building searches to locate hidden suspects.Both dogs are also trained in  criminal apprehension.

Training involved with this assignment is constant and entails 100's of hours to obtain certification.The University is better prepared for events and incidents because of having such a special detail and the University community will benefit for having such services.
