K-9 Unit Report

The Plymouth Township Police Dept. K-9 unit was started in Aug. of 1999. Ofc. Steve Cheston and his K-9 partner "Hogan" served the Plymouth community for 9 years, before Hogan’s retirement in January of 2008.

Officer Albrecht with K9 RadarOfficer Steve Albrecht was selected as Plymouth Townships second K-9 handler and began his training with new K-9 partner “Radar”. Officer Albrecht and Radar will undergo several months of training, and once this training is completed they will be patrolling the streets of Plymouth. They will be tasked with narcotic detection, suspect apprehension, searching for lost or missing individuals, building searches, and available for public demonstrations. 

Officer Albrecht came up with an idea to allow community involvement and asked the residents to submit a hand drawn picture along with a name for the new K-9. Once all the entries were submitted, they were reviewed and the winner was selected, and a pizza party was awarded.
