The Atlantic City Police Department announced today the addition of three K-9 teams to the department.

Police K-9s and their handlers are trained in different types of police work.  They work in narcotic and explosive detection, search and rescue, as well as criminal apprehension, and more.

The three teams began their training last September and have just graduated.

K9 Officer Robert Reynolds and his partner, K9 Carlo, completed the Patrol Operations & Narcotic Detection Dog Handler Course.

Last year, Fletcher donated another K-9 to Atlantic City police.  That K-9 team, Narco and his handler, Officer Nunez-Santos have already made an impact on the streets.

Officer Nunez-Santos and Narco are responsible for apprehending large quantities of drugs, paraphernalia, and cash.
