K-9 Unit

The Brown County Sheriff's Office deploys five K-9 teams. Four of the teams are what is known as a dual purpose team. They are trained in patrol tactics which include tracking and area searches for missing people or suspects and in protecting their handler. As a second purpose these teams also specialize in the detection of either drugs or explosives. The fifth team is a single purpose team which is assigned to a handler with the Brown County Drug Task Force and specializes in the detection of drugs. These teams are highly trained and the handlers spend many hours perfecting their skills for the citizenry.

Although the animals endure many dangers that could cause them injury or death, they never hesitate to serve and protect when called upon.

In addition to responding to calls in Brown County, these officers and their partners have responded to calls for assistance through out northeast Wisconsin. The dogs reside with their handler and his family and they are on call 24/7/365.

Many of the narcotics searches are conducted on highway interdiction stops, at jails/prisons, airports, area schools and major events. The increasing demand for explosives searches occur at businesses, airports, public events and VIP motorcades.

Their incredible ability to find items and people produces an invaluable increase in Officer Safety, efficiency and community service.

K9 Statue

In 2013 the Sheriff’s Office received a donation of a statue to honor these great animals and their service to Brown County. Sheriff John Gossage dedicated this memorial to the current and past K9s and their handlers. The statue now stands in front of the office on Development Drive as a tribute to their time standing guard for the citizenry.
