Since 1976, the Fresno County Sheriff's Office has utilized canines as a tool to better protect and serve the citizens of Fresno County. The trained Sheriff's canine performs a vital and necessary service to the community. In an age where personal attacks upon officers are commonplace, the Sheriff's canine answers an increasing need in law enforcement.

While the Sheriff's canine is considered an advanced tool in law enforcement, handlers and the general public quickly learn of the deep bond that forms between the handler and their canine partner. Being a member of the canine unit is truly an awesome responsibility and one that its members take very seriously.
