The Fairview Heights Police Department is proud and fortunate to have two K9 units serving the citizens and visitors of the city. The teams are assigned to different squads which allows a dog to be available at various times of the day or night.
The teams have been very successful in locating drugs, currency and suspects, making the community a safer place for everyone. K-9 Eve is certified as a full service dog while K-9 Demi is on track for full service certification. Their successes have not gone unnoticed by surrounding communities; as they are often requested by other departments to assist in drug searches as well as to track suspects or locate articles.
