Walworth County Sheriff's Office Canine Unit has been in existence since
The Unit provides
services to other departments within the county including building searches,
narcotic searches, tracking, and other canine skills. School Districts
throughout the county use the canine unit's narcotic skills by requesting
locker and vehicle searches on school grounds. The unit has been
successful in the location of narcotics during these searches.
In addition to the
handling of their canine partners, Deputies Wierenga and Hintz continue to
meet their obligations as officers in the Patrol Division.
The officers do this by investigating accidents, handling complaints, and
enforcing traffic laws. Both officers are committed to providing and
promoting quality canine services to Walworth County. Both canine
teams maintain quality training and are certified on a yearly basis.
The Canine Unit is
available for demonstrations to civic organizations and schools throughout
