Canine Service

Deputy Hall with Chica.
Deputy Chad Hall was teamed with Chica in November of 2008. Chica is a five year old Belgian Malinois. The Belgian Malinois has earned the reputation in law enforcement, of being a high energy dog that cannot be worn out. This is an endearing quality for a police service dog. Like the Sheriff’s previous teams, Chica has been trained in narcotics detection, search, tracking and handler protection (please don’t try to pet her), all of which remain of great importance to the safety of our community. She is also trained to respond to handler commands in a language other than English. Deputy Hall and Chica are called upon frequently to support both the Sheriff’s law enforcement obligations and our obligations to community safety.

Sheriff John Thompson maintains the value of our officers and their canine companions cannot be established in the total of their cost, but more in the added safety and support they continue to provide to our community.
