The Willingboro Police Department K-9 Unit has honorably served the residents of Willingboro and the surrounding communities with distinction since 1966, making it the longest, continually run K-9 program in Burlington County. All of our K-9 teams, both past and present, have met or exceeded the training standards for K-9 Units in the State of New Jersey for patrol work and scent detection, which include: obedience, agility, article searches, building searches, area searches, tracking, criminal apprehension, handler protection and either narcotics detection or explosive detection. Currently, the K-9 Unit has one K-9 team and we look forward to training more teams in the future.
