K9 Units

Officer Aaron Bales and K9 ZoeIn August, 2019, our newest addition to our K9 program is K9 Zoe and her handler, Officer Aaron Bales. The pair passed their Oregon Police Canine Association (OPCA) certification test to become a Certified Narcotic Detection Team.  K9 Zoe is a five-year-old Belgian Malinois trained to detect the odor of Methamphetamine, Heroin and Cocaine. She was acquired from the State of Jefferson Working Dogs in Gold Hill, Oregon. K9 Zoe and Officer Bales completed several weeks of training prior to taking their OPCA certification test.  K9 Zoe and Officer Bales are assigned to the Patrol Division.
