The Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office recently launched its newest law enforcement initiative, the K-9 enforcement team.
The team, comprised of five K-9 officers and their dogs, is similar to the sheriff’s office community policing program, which targets areas with high crime and drug activity, but the K-9 enforcement team is its own patrol division.
The K-9 enforcement team answers calls, conducts driver’s license checkpoints and assists with other agencies when K-9s are needed.
Officers with the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Enforcement Team answered 35 calls last week, issued 17 uniformed citations and 22 total charges. Officers conducted eight driver’s license checkpoints and made seven drug arrests.
K-9 officers targeted the following areas between Aug. 18-24: The Quarters, McMilly Road, Little Macedonia Road, Stevenson Mobile Home Park, Sunset Harbor, Forest Drive, Mulberry, Smith Road, Seashore Road, Governors Road, Boones Neck Road, Caison Loop, Snowfield, Hale Swamp Road, Wolfridge Road, Turkey Trap Road, Navassa, Cedar Hill, Long Beach Road and Dutchman Acres.
