ATV Emergency Response Team K-9 Motorcycle Traffic
K-9 Unit Welcomes New 'Deputy'
Jackson County Deputy Jeremy Glines has a new partner. His full name is quite a mouthful: Blitz Von Der Furcht Innen. Fortunately, you need not call him "Deputy Von Der Furcht Innen." Just "Blitz," will do. Blitz, a 70-pound German Shepherd, formally joined the Jackson County Sheriff's K-9 Unit May 27, 2009, when Sheriff Mike Sharp accepted the dog from the Heart of America Kennel Club during a meeting at The Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Center in Overland Park, Kansas. > MORE
The K-9 unit is a specialized unit within the Patrol Division and is available to respond to any situation where a K-9 team will be beneficial.
Frequently people outside of law enforcement misunderstand how the dogs are actually used and deployed. The dogs are used in a variety of situations:
- Search for hidden suspects
- Apprehend fleeing suspects
- Search for lost persons
- Search for evidence
- Protect the handler & other officer
