The Bentonville Police Department's K-9 Unit is comprised of three K-9 teams. Each K-9 team consists of a veteran officer and their K-9 partner.
The K-9 unit was created to:
Assist officers with the detection of illegal narcotics and explosive materials
Apprehension of felons
Searching for lost persons
Protection of officers
The Bentonville Police Department's K-9 teams are nationally certified through the National Narcotic Detector Dog Association and American Working Dogs.
The K-9 team’s service to the community and their fellow officers has proven to be invaluable.
Officer Robin Fields and Maverick
After exploring many options at the Bentonville Municipal Airport, the city implemented a K9 program that is very effective at removing geese, birds, and other wildlife hazards from the airport property. Robin has been a handler of several K9's during his law enforcement career. He and Maverick work daily to make the Bentonville Airport a safe place for our pilots.
Robin is also a Reserve Officer with the Bentonville Police Department.
