K-9 Unit

The Jefferson Davis Sheriff's Office currently utilizes two certified K-9 Deputies who aid in the fight against illegal drugs: K-9 Deputies Jonathan Hebert and Michael Gary.

Deputy Hebert works with a multi-purpose dog, Bean that performs a multitude of duties, some of which include tracking, locating illegal narcotics and area and building searches.

Tracking involves searching for subjects who have fled a scene, as well as helping to locate lost citizens. Bean is also able to seek out and detect illegal narcotics in a variety of settings, including residential and in vehicles.

All Sheriff’s Office K-9 Deputies and their canines go through extensive training and are certified in all aspects of their duties.

Canines are trained to indicate the presence of drugs, regardless of the quantity. Upon location of the odor of a controlled substance, the dog will alert to the smell by sitting at the source of the odor. This response may also indicate that the item(s) in question may have been recently contaminated or associated with, the odor of one or more controlled substances. Both the dog and the handler undergo regular maintenance-training in order to be familiar with new substances and maintain sharpened senses.

The Sheriff's Office uses the K-9 Unit in everyday duties on patrol, and the K-9 team may be called upon to assist any other Sheriff's Department division, as well as other agencies requesting assistance within the parish.
