The Greene County Sheriff’s Office K9 division was established in 2009 by donations from private organizations. We have five dual-purpose Police Service Dogs, Zen, Rocky, Zeke, Loki and Drax each teamed with a highly trained Deputy. Together, these teams work to apprehend dangerous criminals and detect hidden narcotics. Our K9 teams cover all of Greene County and assist all municipalities in the county as well as surrounding agencies when needed.
The Greene County Sheriff’s Office K9 Teams are entirely funded by donations (everything from the purchase of the K9, to training, food, vet bills, and daily maintenance for the K9). We are extremely grateful for the support of our local communities, and we extend our most heartfelt thanks to those men and women who assist us in our service. If you would like to become one of our sponsors, or would like to donate to our K9 program, feel free to contact us (listed on our contact page) or please click the "Donate" button to be redirected to PayPal.
