K-9 Unit Overview
Hutchinson Correctional Facility’s K-9 Unit exists not only for escapes and contraband searches within the prison system but is also available to assist police and sheriff departments within a reasonable proximity of the prison.
To properly utilize the K-9 Unit to its full potential, guidelines have been established to help the dogs succeed in their efforts. However because of the number of individuals involved in an initial search, please adhere to the following points from the beginning of the search if the dog team is to be successful:
- Request assistance as soon as possible.
- Secure the area from all unnecessary foot or vehicle traffic.
- Do not handle or disturb potential scent articles.
