The Winnipeg Police Service officially opened the doors to its new K-9 Facility on June 21st, 2013.

This video will give you a quick peek at the new 4,500 square foot, high-security kennel facility. It is located at 77 Durand Road, adjacent to the East District Police Station.

In addition to 11 air-conditioned indoor kennels and attached dog runs, the building features a large community classroom and common area for public demonstrations and office space for the officers in the unit.

The new facility also features a whelping kennel and indoor puppy run as part of the Winnipeg Police Service's nationally recognized in-house breeding program -- one of the only programs of its kind in Canada, which began in 1999.

The Winnipeg Police Service K-9 Unit employs 12 teams -- 12 uniform officers and 23 canines - offering 24-hour coverage, seven days a week to protect the safety of citizens in Winnipeg.

With narcotic detector dogs, explosive detector dogs, tactical support dogs and several dogs cross-trained in multiple disciplines, each K-9 team is extensively trained for a particular objective prior to deployment.
