A K9 is a valuable asset to law enforcement. Canines can sniff out suspects hiding or illegal drugs concealed from view. The K9 programs are always popular with the local schools, community groups where demonstrations are often conducted. The Mayville Police Department is committed to working with the schools and the community to combat the use and transportation of illegal drugs.
In April, 2015, K9 Boja joined the Mayville Police Department as the newest member. Boja, a 1 1/2 year-old German Shepherd from Germany assigned to Officer Mark Forster. Boja is trained in drug detection as well as search and rescue. The K9 program would not be feasible without the support and generous donations from the community. The program is funded entirely from donations and annual fundraising.
