The Goshen County Sheriff's Office has some of the best detection dogs in the area. These dogs are tenacious about locating illegal drugs and lost persons. They also love to get pets and hugs from local school children.
We have patrol dogs that specialize in tracking, apprehension, building searches, and officer protection. This canine can be used to track fleeing fugitives.
In addition, we have trained detection dogs with our Search and Rescue Division that aid in the locating and retrieval of lost persons.
