K9 Diesel is dual purpose Police Service Dog born September 2017 in Hungary and imported via the United States. Diesel is paired with Cst. Hall who completed an initial training period in North Carolina in the fall of 2018. The Canine Unit’s primary value is in its ability to support patrol. Canine can be at the scene, almost immediately, of an armed robbery, auto theft, break and enter or weapons offence. The dogs add their tracking ability and speed to patrol investigations and often assist in apprehending suspects. Cst. Hall and PSD Diesel also visit schools regularly and do demonstrations for community groups.
