BCSD offers glimpse inside K-9 training program

BCSD K-9 training

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department gave KRQE News 13 a behind the scenes look at their K-9 program.

Fenix and his handler running through a cadaver search. The department has several dogs with their own detection specialty, which includes cadavers, bombs and narcotics.

The pups go through a six-week certification course racking up close to 300 hours of training.

The department says having the K-9 unit is a major benefit. Once the K-9’s achieve national certification, they’re considered street ready.
