The Pelham Police Department takes great pride in its K-9 Unit because of the proficiency and ability of the animals working in partnership with their handlers. The canine sense of smell is over 400,000 times greater than that of a human. For this reason, the K-9 Unit has become a valuable asset to the Pelham Police Department and the community we serve.
Our department has three K-9 teams comprised of a police officer and his canine partner. All are specialized in the detection of explosives.
