Camden County Sheriff’s Office adopts new K9

The Camden County Sheriff’s Office has a new K9 on staff, trained to help with narcotics detection. Kaiser is a 21-month-old German Shepherd, and will work with Sergeant Scott Hines on narcotics searches, warrants, and helping deputies on patrol as needed.

Kaiser was adopted from Universal K-9, a company based in San Antonio, Texas specializing in training shelter dogs for police work. After his adoption, Kaiser spent several weeks in Texas with Sgt. Hines training and learning to work together.

Because of a stretched budget, the Camden County Sheriff’s Office relied on private donations and a fundraising campaign to adopt Kaiser and pay for training, the cost of which can run up to $15,000.

“Without the support of our community, we would not have been able to get this project done,” said Sgt. Hines. “I am very grateful to the citizens of Camden County who helped us adopt Kaiser and I look forward to working with him for many years to help our community.”
