In December 2008, the Redlands Police Department began its
drug-sniffing K-9 program.
Redlands Police officers frequently call on the department canine
and also make him available to other local and federal agencies.
The K-9 program also provides regular service to local schools
through a contract with the Redlands Unified School District.
Since 2008, the ongoing training, medical costs, equipment and
lodging for the department’s canines have been supported entirely
by private donations with no cost to the City’s General Fund.
The Redlands Police Department accepts direct donations to the
K-9 program. Contact your tax professional to determine if your
donation is tax deductible. Donations may be made out to the
Redlands Police Community Foundation (please specify Police
