K9 Unit


The League City Police Departments re-established the K-9 Unit in 2011. The mission of the K-9 Unit is to support the Patrol Division and assist in criminal investigations involving narcotics violations and criminal apprehensions. The majority of what we utilize the Unit for includes:

  • Area Searches
  • Building Searches
  • Narcotics Detection
  • Vehicle Searches

Patrol Duites

When not actively engaged in assisting other officers, the K-9 Units are responsible for narcotic and criminal interdiction duties. Patrol duties include:

  • Article searches for evidence at a crime scene
  • Building searches during alarm calls
  • Tracking of suspects who had evaded arrest
  • Violent offender apprehension
