ZPD seeks donations to start up K-9 Unit

The Zionsville Police Department is looking to better the community and better its department by bringing back the canine division.

Zionsville Police Chief Rob Knox said the prior program was discontinued several years ago when the department retired the canine and promoted the handler to other administrative responsibilities.

“There is definitely a need,” Knox said. “Most agencies have a unit and some have multiple dogs.”

Knox said within the past year, they have had to make several calls to other agencies with a K-9 unit. Major disadvantages of not having a canine unit is the availability and the time it takes for an outside unit to arrive on the scene.

“We usually have to call and see if other agencies are available, and it’s time for us to start pulling our own weight,” he said.
