K-9 Unit

  • The Peterborough Police Service Canine (K9) Unit was formed in 1997.  Six police service dogs (PSD) have since served and been retired.
  • Currently, Constable Kyle Adey with PSD Chase and Constable Robert Cowie with PSD Isaac can be seen patrolling the streets of Peterborough Lakefield and in the Township of Cavan Monaghan.
  • Police Service Dogs have many responsibilities. Their expertise includes narcotic detection, tracking, agility, article search, building search, open search, chase and apprehension, and handler protection.
  • All handlers must complete an extensive thirteen-week course where the handler and dog learn as a team. Our PSD teams are trained and continue maintenance training under direction of the Niagara Regional Police Canine Unit.
  •  The K9 teams attend numerous public functions and school presentations.
