In June of 2016, the Glens Falls Police Department re-established a police K9 unit after a 20 year absence. Currently the police department has one K9 team, Officer Kirsten Lunder and her partner Brutus. Our department is very fortunate to have been able to re-start our K9 program and would like to thank the community for supporting this endeavor. Many people have donated their time and money to provide the officers and k9’s with the necessary equipment to keep them all safe on the streets while performing their duties. We would like to extend a special thank you to Jenn Howse of 11th Hour Canine Rescue and Protect and Vest NYK9’s for all your help along the way.
The GF K9 and handler has attended numerous events throughout the city of Glens Falls. They have given demonstrations, attended public relation events, and worked with the Glens Falls School District.
