Louisa County Sheriff's Office

K-9 Patrol / Narcotics Units

The Louisa County Sheriff's Office mainly uses Belgian Malinois and German Shepherds for our Patrol/Narcotics canines. These dogs are imported from Europe and typically join the Sheriff's Office when they are between 1-3 years old. European dogs are primarily utilized because they have a strong work ethic and provide our community with the best return for the investment, in time and money that a canine team requires to maintain its level of effectiveness.
