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 37 calls last week, issued 16 uniformed citations and 21 total charges.
Beginning Aug. 4, officers focused on the following areas: Pinecrest, McMilly Road, Longwood, New Brittan Loop, Blue Banks Loop, U.S. 74-76, Cedar Hill Road, Wolfridge, Stevenson Road, Turkey Trap Road, Shell Point Road, Long Beach Road, Cedar Hill Road, Seashore Road, Boones Neck Road, Snowfield Road, Dogwood Road, Dutchman Acres, Beach Drive, Green Loop Road and Lanvale Road.
