The Police K-9 Association was established in 1985, shortly after the start of the K-9 Unit. The group was created to help get the equipment, training needed to be a successful K-9 team.  There are costs in starting and maintaining a successful K-9 program. City and county financial expenses often cut out needed equipment, to maintain policing in other areas. That is where the Police K-9 Association assists these agencies by offering financial meants to offset the cost in training, equipment, and medical needs of both active, and retired K-9’s.

The Police K-9 Association assists K-9 handlers from about 20 police and sheriff departments.
