Ten K9s and their Handlers Set to Graduate from Harris County Sheriff’s Office Academy

What: Ten rookie K9s and their human partners are ready for duty now that they’ve completed the Harris County Sheriff’s Office’s 13-week training program. The K9s include three breeds – Beglian Malinois, Dutch Shepherd, and German Shepherd – that are ready to serve the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, Harris County Precinct 1 Constable’s Office, Harris County Precinct 3 Constable’s Office, Conroe Police Department, and the Coryell County Sheriff’s Office.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office operates the regional K9 training facility.

Most of the newly-trained K9s -- including all four of those joining the Harris County Sheriff’s Office ranks – were purchased with funds generously donated by the non-profit K9s4COPs.

The K9s were trained on a new agility course, which was generously funded by the non-profit HCSO Foundation. A live demonstration of a K9 and its handler using the course will be performed, weather permitting.

Who: Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez, partner law enforcement agencies, representatives from K9s4COPs and the HCSO Foundation
When: Tuesday, June 25, 2019 at 9 a.m.
Where: Harris County Sheriff’s Office Academy, 2316 Atascocita Road, Humble, TX 77396
