In November of 1979, two Los Angeles Police Department officers recognized an urgent need for specialized canine work in the City of Los Angeles. In April 1980, approval was given to train two search dogs for a pilot program within the West Bureau of the Police Department. The achievements of these two dogs were so astounding that, after two months, the one-year trial program was declared a total success. During its two decade-plus years of operation, an increasing demand for the unique services provided by the K-9 Platoon has allowed it to gradually grow until the entire City now has rapid access to search dogs on a twenty-four hour basis.
