K-9 Unit

The Christian County Sheriff’s Office began a new K-9 Unit in January 2020. Since its successful startup, the K-9 program has grown with the recent addition of K-9 Chase and K-9 Kurt in 2021. Both canines are German Shepherds and hand-selected for drive, temperament, physical agility, and independence.

The K-9 teams continually undergo basic and advanced training and provide a valuable asset to surrounding Law Enforcement, and the citizens of Christian County. They assist Deputies and provide a dedication that is unmatched with a devotion of duty of a job well done by their handlers.        

The K-9 program is funded by generous donations from the citizens of Christian County. K-9 Chase and K-9 Kurt would like to thank the community for the unwavering support and appreciate future donations     

K-9 Kurt is a 2.5-year-old German Shepard. He was born in Slovakia and purchased when he was 17 months of age. Kurt was hand-selected after testing over a dozen potential candidates. He is trained as a dual-purpose Patrol/Narcotics canine. K-9 Chase is a 2-year-old German Shepard. He was hand-selected and purchased by CCSO to begin his training at 8 weeks of age. Chase is trained by members of the Christian County Sheriff’s Office as a dual-purpose Patrol/Narcotics canine.
