Our Mission Statement
Our mission at Sector K9 is to provide accurate and reliable training for Police K9’s, their handlers, and departments at no cost. We service municipal, county, and school district law enforcement agencies across the country and place a significant emphasis on honesty and integrity with our interactions with clients meeting their unique needs.
We provide unsurpassed and the most progressive training at no cost to agencies providing dual purpose patrol K9’s, narcotics detection, and explosive detection training.
SectorK9 Foundation is a non profit 501(c)(3) dedicated to protecting communities around the nation. We leverage our 40+ years of law enforcement to make K9 units accessible to departments, communities, and schools around the country. We achieve this by providing our K9s for free, making the only expense training and maintenance classes.
We help departments acquire and maintain K9 units at lower costs. This saves tax payers thousands and helps departments acquire K9s when they may not have been able to otherwise. We are also proud to rescue shelter dogs and give them a new chance at life through our Rescue2Resource program.
