The Novi Police Department K-9 program was established to support patrol operations and investigations. The police K-9 is not only capable of detecting dangerous controlled substances, such as heroin, but also tracking of suspects, lost children or others in need of being located who may have special needs. The K-9 officers frequently will visit Novi Parks in the summer to meet with citizens and children, in order to educate them about the program and police department. There are many requests received each year from local schools, homeowners associations, and local community events for demonstrations and education. The positive relationship that the K-9 program has facilitated with the community has been invaluable.
