The EPS Canine Unit Community Outreach Demonstration program was established to positively promote the unit and the organization as a whole. All requests for demonstrations will be reviewed and evaluated. If the request is deemed suitable, then a selected Canine handler and dog will attend the desired location. The demonstration is approximately 45 minutes in duration. The demonstration aims to bridge the gap between the public and police by presenting and explaining the value and benefit of Canine inclusion in policing and protecting the community. Crime prevention and criminal deterrence messaging is stressed throughout.
If you are interested in a Canine demonstration for school visits or larger community events, please contact the Canine Unit at 780-496-8618
