A K-9’s job is to work for City and state police, county sheriff departments and federal law agencies. Their duties include (yet not limited to) street patrols, drug detection, search and recovery, tracking suspects, searches for suspects or missing people, weapon detection, explosives detection and more.
The MECA Wisconsin Police Canine Vest Foundation, Inc.'s mission is to protect every police dog in the state of Wisconsin by providing them with bullet resistant and stab proof vests as well as assist Wisconsin K-9 Units in purchasing police dogs and equipment needed to help protect and serve the communities.
