Originating in 1959, the Houston Police Department's K-9 Unit 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.
The Narcotics Division utilizes canines for Drug Detection. There are currently 12 teams in the Narcotics Division and are assigned to various sections throughout the police department. See photo gallery for Narcotics Canines currently in need of sponsors.
To ensure the 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.
The HPD Canine Detail is in need of financial support for the purchase of new Canines. The cost averages from $12,000 to $15,000. If you are interested, please contact Charlene Floyd with the Houston Police Foundation at 713-308-4680 or email email@example.com
