HPD Canine Unit
Originating in 1959, the Houston Police Department's K-9 Unit Program is one of the oldest Patrol Divisions on the department. There are currently thirty-nine teams in the K-9 unit which are assigned to various sections throughout the police department.
To ensure K-9 Unit is able to operate at its current capacity, we are seeking financial support from corporations, organizations, and individuals to offset the unit's operating costs. Accordingly, we are requesting that you consider sponsoring an HPD K-9.
Donate to Purchase a Canine for HPD
The HPD Canine Detail is in need of financial support in the purchase of new Canines. If you are interested in supporting this effort the cost averages $12,000 to $15,000 depending on the training of the canine and the need.
