A K-9's Promise
I will lay down my life for you
And expect nothing but love in return.
I will protect my officer with my life,
And would gladly replace his life for mine.
I am sent in to find lost children
And fugitives on the run.
I find Drugs and weapons and even bombs.
I am the first sent in and often the last to leave,
I am the nose and ears of my officer.
I will protect and serve him.
I would die for him and for you.
I only ask for compassion and a kind word.
The Police K9 has become a unique and sophisticated tool which enhances Police
The Department of Justice believes that a well established and properly trained Police K9 Unit dramatically reduces potential risks to Police Officers and is a psychological deterrent to criminals. Statistics have proven that the Police K9 often offers an alternative to Police Officers being forced to use deadly force and drastically minimizes assaults and injuries inflicted on Officers by Offenders.
The Kane County Sheriff's Office began utilizing Police K9's in the early 1960's.
The K9 Unit has developed a positive image in the community and is well supported
by upstanding Citizens. The Sheriff's K9 Unit has proven to be an immeasurable
asset to the local Law Enforcement Community and an outstanding service program
to the citizens of Kane County.
