How the Sheriff’s K-9 Unit protects our safety

The San Francisco Sheriff’s Office deputy handlers train K-9 dogs to detect banned items such as drugs and explosive materials and devices. Our K-9 unit also provides search and rescue services.

SFSO deputies and K-9s patrol San Francisco’s county jails, courthouses and other high-profile civic buildings daily. K-9s and their deputy handlers also provide mutual aid to other cities and counties during emergencies.
