In March 2004, the Alton Police Department reinstated its Canine Program after having gone several years without the program.  The Alton Police Department currently has three canine teams or K-9 Units. Each K-9 Unit consists of one trained canine handler and one trained full-service police dog.

If you see any of the K-9 handlers on duty, feel free to ask them questions. If a handler currently has his dog outside the vehicle, please keep your distance from the K-9 Unit and DO NOT PET the dog without the handler’s consent.

If you have any further questions, you may click here to email the K-9 Program.
