The Cheviot Police Department has a K-9 unit within the department. Thanks to donations from the public, Cheviot School and grants through the Matt Haverkamp Foundation the Department is able to fund the program. Sergeant Jeff Patton has maintained the program since its inception in 2008. His current K9 partner, Kuno, who began service in the winter of 2017, was trained here locally by Sgt. Patton and both recently received a commendation for their efforts in a drug apprehension.
Charlie, our K9 before Kuno, retired in 2017 and has since passed away.
The department is still accepting donations to fund the K-9 program.
