WHAT DOES THE MPD K9 UNIT DO?
The Milwaukee Police K9 Unit has been serving the citizens of Milwaukee since 2007. The unit currently has nine K9 teams. The K9s are German Shepherds from Germany and are trained for suspect apprehension, drugs and firearm detection. We have two K9’s who are certified in explosive detection. Purchasing and training these K9s is costly. All dogs live at home with their handler and family.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT

The Milwaukee Police K9 Foundation is entirely independent of the Milwaukee Police Department, the Foundation works in cooperation with the K9 Unit to identify and provide special needs that are unable to be funded through the city’s budget.
