Rabun County Sheriff’s K9 Team continues Training

The K9 Program of the Rabun County Sheriff’s Office recently received some training on how to use new medical kits from the Rabun Animal Hospital.  Rabun County Sheriff Chad Nichols gives details. “Our canine teams train weekly to stay proficient in tracking and drug detection. Last week, part of the training included the handlers receiving instruction on how to properly treat their canine partner if they become sick or injured while performing their duties. The medical kits were recently purchased by a citizen for our K-9 Program. We would like to thank Dr. Brad Speed and the Rabun Animal Hospital for the instruction and support of our K-9 Program.”  The Rabun County Sheriff’s Office K9 Program is part of the patrol division, which is comprised of deputies that respond to 911 service calls, patrol the 377 square miles of Rabun County to deter crime, enforce Georgia’s criminal and traffic laws, investigate traffic crashes, check businesses, and more on a daily basis.
