The Canine Coordinator provides training and technical advice to kennel staff and gathers and tracks data about the program. There are 47 units that host kennels or a combination of kennels throughout the agency.
These kennels are represented in all regions of CID. There are 41 units that house pack canines, 23 units that house scent-specific canines, five units that house cadaver canines, and eight units that house cellphone/narcotic canines. Tracking canines are a key resource used by security staff during escapes and are also used to assist local law enforcement agencies. Each region has a kennel with canines capable of detecting controlled substances and cell phones. Global Positioning System (GPS) upgrades have been obtained to assist canine staff and administration in training and tracking canine performance.
