We give you a behind the scenes look at a day in the life of a detection dog and what it takes to bring communities together. Officer Dave Contreras talks about his partner K9 Coco and the work they do.
We grant funds to Sector K9, a dog training facility in Texas. Wes Keeling and his team train former shelter dogs as drug and gun detection dogs. Some dogs are work in their general community, but others, like K9 Coco, work in schools to address the issue of kids using illegal drugs.

All of the K9 teams in the program work to end stereotypes for dogs and people by fostering an environment of community policing.
