Why We Exist
K9s4COPs was formed to assist Law Enforcement Agencies and School Districts with the funding to purchase K9s.
Fully trained law enforcement K9s cost $20,000-$45,000 per dog. Most agencies and school districts struggle when budgeting for the purchase of a K9. K9s4COPs was founded to bridge this gap and ensure that the cost of a K9 never stands in the way of a community or school’s safety.
Why K9s are Important
K9s have a rich history of working with law enforcement and military units dating back to the 1800s.
Police K9s receive specific training to assist law enforcement in ways others cannot.
- K9s are used to sweep venues for explosives, search buildings for narcotics, and apprehend suspects on the run.
K9 Super Powers
- The structure of a dog’s nose gives it a sense of smell that is 300,000-500,000 times stronger than the human nose.
This superpower allows them to follow a scent trail undetectable to humans.
K9s can even breaking down specific scents. Humans can smell beef stew cooking, whereas a K9 smells individual ingredients like the onions, carrots, and thyme.
