A special thanks to Massachusetts Vest-A-Dog who awarded us $5,000.00 to start Holliston's new K9 program. We couldn't have done it without them!

The mission of the K9 Unit is to locate people and/or things at or near crime scenes and provide protection to the community and officers. Generally, a K9 team will be applied as a sophisticated tool to enhance the capabilities of Patrol at a crime scene.

The unit strives to be diverse in its' applications to maximize the abilities of the canines in the investigation of crimes with the safety of the community its’ top priority.

The K9 Unit provides support for the HPD Patrol division and detective division for patrol investigations, suspect apprehension, tactical operations, evidence searches, as well as assisting in searching for missing persons.
