Currently, the Green Cove Springs Police Department's Canine Unit consists of one team (officer and dog). The canine team is certified by the State of Florida in the detection of certain narcotics and in the apprehension of suspects. Every month our canine team trains with canine deputies from the sheriff's office, as well as in-house training, in order to sharpen the team's skills. Since establishing the team in 2019, our team has been extremely successful in locating and seizing various amounts of narcotics. Our team has also assisted other local law enforcement agencies when called upon.
The Canine Unit falls under the command of the Operations Division Commander.
