Police K9

Brodie joined the Stayton Police Department in 2013 when the community came together and raised money to develop and implement a K-9 program. Brodie was born September 9, 2011 and is an AKC registered Chocolate Lab. Brodie is a four odor K9, capable of detecting marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine and heroin. Brodie was purchased, and received his original training, from Pacific Coast K-9 in Washington.

 

Brodie is teamed up with Detective Paul Eves. Together, the two of them have over 400 hours of training. They train 4 hours weekly and are a certified team with the Oregon Police Canine Association (OPCA) and California Narcotics Canine Association (CNCA). Brodie has been deployed numerous times in our community to detect narcotics and has been utilized to help many other law enforcement agencies as well.

There are three fundraising events each year to support Brodie. In the spring, Where to Start Fitness hosts a K-9 run with all donations going to the K9 program. The United Methodist Church in Stayton hosts an annual spaghetti feed in the fall and members of the Stayton Police Department get wet during “Dunk a Cop” at Stayton Summerfest. 100% of all proceeds at all three events support Brodie.  Food is provided by Stayton Animal Supply and we receive other generous donations throughout the year.

 

Dallas is an AKC registered Springer Spaniel. He was born in August of 2012. He has a more unique story than the typical K-9 partner. Dallas was trained by Pacific Coast K9 to detect marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine and heroin. At the conclusion of his training Dallas went to work for the University of Arizona Police Department as a narcotics K-9. Unfortunately, he was only there for a few months before he developed an injury to his front right leg causing him to retire and return to Pacific Coast K-9 in Washington.

The owner of Pacific Coast K9, Ken Pavlick, generously donated Dallas to Lieutenant Charlie Button while the two were at a conference. When Dallas arrived in Stayton he found his new calling. Dallas is utilized at local schools to help strengthen the relationship between the police department and local youth.  Dallas has proven himself numerous times helping children feel comfortable during difficult situations.

 

Dallas’ dog food is provided by Wilco Farmers in Stayton. All other expenses associated with Dallas are paid for by a member of the agency.
