The Calgary K9 unit plays an integral role in locating weapons, clothing, drugs and cadavers at the scene of a crime.

The Calgary Police Service unveiled its Canine Unit Calendar for 2017, which features one-of-a-kind photos of 22 Police Service Dogs at work in the city.  

The calendar also features a special 13-picture poster insert that can be removed.

New this year, the K9’s will have their very own webpage on the Calgary Police Foundation’s website including photos, videos and profiles which show the various work and doggy personalities. The dogs will also be taking over the Calgary Police Foundation’s Twitter account – woof.

Proceeds from the calendars go to the CPF, which has raised more than $200,000 from the sale in the past three years towards reducing youth victimization and criminal activity by focusing on education, prevention and early intervention.

The K9 unit responds to over 8,000 police-related calls every year, where the dogs play a role in apprehending individuals who have committed serious criminal offenses and locating evidence of a crime.

The calendars are available for purchase at all Calgary area Safeway locations or online for $10.
