NMCD K-9 Program


In 2013, the New Mexico Corrections Department expanded our STIU K-9 program! We now have eight working K-9's assisting in NMCD investigations across the state. Unlike police dogs, which normally only specialize in one skill, like drugs, bombs or intimidation/control techniques, five of our dogs do it all!!! The other three concentrate on drug seizures specifically.

 
STIU K-9's can even sniff out suboxone and cell phones! Pretty expressive snouts, huh!! Plus, their training makes for some great photos! Take a minute and check out the pictures!
